Florida DEP Continues Restoration of Rivers, Lakes, Estuaries

Published 11-05-2008
Florida has marked yet another significant milestone in its comprehensive strategy to address waterbody restorations around the state. As part of the Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) Program and the on-going initiative to set water quality goals for impaired waterbodies, Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Secretary Michael W. Sole has approved the establishment of specific reduction targets for 20 waterbodies. This latest round of pollutant reductions have been adopted for waters located in the St. Marks/Ochlockonee River, the Suwannee/Santa Fe River, and the Everglades West Coast Basins. These limits have also been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency under federal law.
