ATTENTION: Aquatic Plant Managers

ATTENTION Aquatic Plant ManagersThe launch of the Plant Management in Florida Waters site deliberately coincides with new requirements of the EPA NPDES Permit Program, which includes the application of pesticides to waters of the United States as of October 31, 2011. In response, the Pesticide Generic Permit (PGP) is being implemented by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.

Anyone applying pesticides to Florida waters should read Section 4 of this website and become familiar with the State of Florida’s Generic Permit for Pollutant Discharges to Surface Waters of the State from the Application of Pesticides.

Note: Questions about the Florida Generic Permit should be directed to the DEP Wastewater Program.
