Data Requests



The Department of Environmental Protection is one of many organizations collecting water quality data in the State of Florida. Among these are local county agencies, the St. Johns Water Management District, and the Fish and Wildlife commission. All of these agencies contribute their data to Florida's STORET database, named as an amalgamation of "store" and "Retrieve". Once entered, water chemistry, field data, and bench biological data are available for download from DEP's STORET Public Access site. Instructions on how to filter through and download data

For assistance with data retrieval contact Natalie Ayala at natalie.ayala@dep.state.fl.us or 407-897-4178.

Additional Sources for Water Quality Data and Information


Central District Ecosummaries (FDEP)

Ecosummaries are assessments of the ecological health of specific waterbodies based on the available chemical and biological data.

Envirofacts Multisystem Query (U.S. EPA)

  • This US EPA database integrates information about hazardous waste, toxic and air releases, Superfund sites, and water discharge permits.

Florida Fish Advice (Department of Health)

Florida Healthy Beaches Program (Department of Health)

  • Beginning with a 1998 pilot program, 11 Florida coastal counties began conducting beach water sampling every two weeks and reporting the results online and in local news media. In August 2002, the coastal counties began collecting weekly samples. The coastal beach water samples collected by the county health departments are analyzed for enterococci and fecal coliform bacteria.  High concentrations of these bacteria may indicate the presence of microorganisms that could cause disease, infections, or rashes.
