Program to determine amount of contaminants rivers can handle

Published 8/2/2008 - High Springs Herald
A new program aimed at reducing the total amount of contaminants in Florida's water bodies, including the Suwannee and Santa Fe rivers, is in the process of developing the total amount of pollutants that can safely enter water bodies without causing water bodies to be impaired.

Officials with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection held a workshop in High Springs recently to explain to the public how its Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) Program will help to clean up area water bodies.
