The construction of drinking water supply wells is regulated by Chapter 62-532
of the Florida Administrative Code, adopted by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. The rule is typically implemented by the five water management districts that issue the well construction permits. In some cases, the districts have delegated the program to local agencies, including the following county health departments: Baker, Brevard, Broward, Clay, Flagler, Glades, Hendry, Highlands, Indian River, Lake, Marion, Martin, Miami-Dade, Nassau, Okeechobee, Orange, Osceola, Palm Beach, Putnam, St. Lucie, Sarasota, Volusia and St. Johns. In these counties, the health department is the agency that issues drinking water well construction permits.
