Data Assessment & Statistics
The protection of water resources is enhanced by collecting and managing various types of ground water and springs data. Springs and ground water data are collected from various FDEP programs and other agencies and then integrated into a new centralized repository. These data are managed to support the development of Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) for potentially impaired waters, spring system assessments, ground water to surface water interaction investigations and statewide drinking water assessments. Data are catalogued and mapped to maximize the identification of natural and anthropogenic substances of concern for particular aquifers. Automated computer functions allow routine ground water reports to be generated with ease along with supporting descriptive statistics and other calculations that indicate whether the water resource meets its designated use for potable water supply or the support of aquatic life.
