An Everglades Works of the District (EWOD) Permit is required of landowners or entities within or discharging to drainage basins in the Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA) or C-139 Basin that ultimately drain to the Everglades. Generally all lands are required to apply for an EWOD Permit.

An EWOD Permit is an approval of a best management practices (BMP) plan, and of a discharge (water quality and quantity) monitoring plan where applicable. The goal is to achieve a 25-percent reduction in phosphorus loads from the EAA Basin as a whole and to maintain historic phosphorus discharge loads in the C-139 Basin.
