It's a New Day in Public Health.
The Florida Department of Health works to protect, promote & improve the health of all people in Florida through integrated state, county & community efforts.
The Onsite Sewage program has moved to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP).
Regulatory authority for management of the Onsite Sewage Program (i.e., the septic tank program) has transferred from the Florida Department of Health (DOH) to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). Your local CHD will continue to serve all your routine program needs per Interagency Agreement between the DEP and DOH.
