Adopted Verified Lists Of Impaired Waters for the Group 3 Basins

 

Please Note:  Revisions to the Group 3 Lists of Impaired Waters

As part of the agency action adopting the lists of impaired waters for the Group 4 Basins, the Department also revised the verified list of impaired waters for two of the Group 3 basins (Lake Worth Lagoon and Peace River Basins), which were adopted on June 17, 2005. The Group 3 lists were revised to remove eight waters from the verified list based on new information that the waters were not, in fact, impaired.

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.
