Both the Federal Government and the State of Florida have programs directed toward protecting sources of public drinking water.

The Federal program is administered by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from Washington, D.C. and their Region IV offices in Atlanta, Georgia. The web site for the EPA is www.epa.gov/. Other web sites for drinking water information are www.epa.gov/safewater/ and www.epa.gov/safewater/protect/protect.html.

The State of Florida program is administered by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) from Tallahassee, Florida and West Palm Beach, Florida. The web site for the FDEP is www.dep.state.fl.us/. Other web sites for drinking water information are www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp/ and www.dep.state.fl.us/water/drinkingwater/index.htm.
