Florida DEP continues restoration of rivers, lakes, estuaries

Published June 2, 2009 - Pine Island Eagle
Florida has marked another milestone in its comprehensive strategy to address waterbody restorations around the state. Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Secretary Michael W. Sole has signed three orders identifying waterbodies for water quality improvement goals. The waters identified for restoration include waters in the Group 5, Group 1, and Group 2 basins. Florida's 52 major basins have been divided into five groups of basins and a five year rotating basin approach is used to monitor and assess waters, to develop and adopt Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) for those waters that do not meet their water quality standards, and to develop Basin Management Action Plans, where appropriate, to serve as the blueprint for restoring the impaired waters.
