Stormwater Management – The control and management of runoff generated by rainfall is of utmost importance to St. Johns County. Several agencies play a role in the evaluation of stormwater generated by development; however, the Land Development Code explains the County's principal regulations; see Section 6.04.06 Design Standards and Improvement Requirements.

Floodplain Development – Any development in the floodplain requires a construction permit. Please see Flood Facts. If you suspect that illegal floodplain development is occurring, call the St. Johns County Transportation Development Division at (904) 209-0627.
