Water Management Districts

Florida’s Department of Environmental Protection manages the quality and quantity of water with the help of five water management districts.       

Florida’s five Water Management Districts:

  • Administer flood protection programs.
  • Develop water shortage plans in times of drought.
  • Acquire and manage lands for water management.
  • Manage consumptive use of water and aquifer recharge.
