Deepwater Ports Maintenance Dredging Study; Results, Interpretations and Recommendations - Ports of Jacksonville, Tampa, Manatee and Pensacola

Chapter 81-228. Laws of Florida charges the Department of Environmental Regulation (DER) to develop a regulatory process which provides long-term permits for conducting maintenance dredging in deepwater ports. In order to accomplish this goal, reliable sediment and water chemistry data on the state's deepwater port systems are required. However, a review of the literature and pertinent permit files, as well as discussions with permitting personnel and port representatives, demonstrated that information on water and sediment quality in Florida deepwater ports was limited. Moreover, the existing data were often lacking in both precision and accuracy.
