Few Local Governments Have Adopted Optional Recreational Surface Water Use Policies, Report No. 10-58, November 2010
Full report in PDF format

While 35 counties and 167 municipalities have adopted coastal management elements in their comprehensive plans, few local governments have adopted optional recreational surface water use policies as encouraged by Ch. 2006-220, Laws of Florida. Most of the governments we contacted were unaware of the 2006 statutory provision, but reported that their counties have addressed recreational surface water use issues through other mechanisms.
