Watershed Monitoring

 

The DEP Integrated Water Resource Monitoring Network (IWRM) Program, is a multi-level or "tiered" monitoring program designed to answer questions about Florida's water quality at differing scales. The program is supported by several DEP water quality monitoring groups in Tallahassee and in regional (district) offices. In general, Tier I addresses statewide and regional (within Florida) questions, Tier II focuses on basin-specific to stream-segment-specific questions, while Tier III answers site-specific questions.

The Central District's Watershed Management and Monitoring (WMM) Program efforts are mostly related to Tier II monitoring which includes basin assessments and monitoring required for total maximum daily load (TMDL) development.  Samples are collected at five watershed basins on the rotation schedule.
