In the event of a dispute as to the applicability of an agricultural exemption from permitting under Subsection 373.406(2), Florida Statutes (F.S.), a water management district or landowner may request that the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) make a binding determination as to whether an existing or proposed agricultural activity qualifies for the exemption.
FDACS compiles 20-year demand projections for agricultural self-suppliers, using best available data. FDACS provides these projections, in five-year increments, to each water management district during the development or revision of regional water supply plans.
