Adopted Verified Lists Of Impaired Waters for the Group 2 Basins

 

  • The Department announces the adoption, via Secretarial Order dated May 27, 2004, of the Verified List of Impaired Waters for the Group 2 Basins.
  • The Department announces the adoption, via Secretarial Order dated September 4, 2003 of the Verified List of Impaired Waters for the Lower St. Johns River mainstem within the Group 2 Basins. The Verified list of nutrient impaired water segments for the mainstem of the Lower St. Johns River were adopted in advance of the other Group 2 basin waters to accommodate a September 30, 2003, deadline imposed by EPA for the establishment of a nutrient TMDL for this portion of the river.

The lists below are the first step in the process of restoring impaired waters for these basins. Now that these waters have been adopted by Secretarial Order, the Department staff will begin developing TMDLs for these waters. A TMDL represents the maximum amount of pollutant loading that can be discharged to a water body and have its designated uses be met. The final step in this process will be the development, by watershed stakeholders and DEP, of a Basin Management Action Plan (BMAP). The BMAP will specify the activities, schedule, and funding sources that point and nonpoint source dischargers will undertake to restore the water body.
