OUTSOURCING OF FLORIDA'S NPDES STORMWATER PROGRAM
Abstract:Florida's Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) assumed administration of the federal National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) on October 22, 2000, ending a delegation process that began over five years ago. Florida became the last state in the Environmental Protection Agency's Region IV (EPA), to assume delegation of the NPDES stormwater program. Florida has also become the first state to outsource the bulk of its program activities on such a large scale. The outsourcing is provided by private contractors, who write and monitor permits, as well as provide inspections for construction, industrial and municipal permittees.
