Integrated Water Quality Assessment for Florida: 2012 305(b) Report and 303(d) List Update

This report provides an overview of the status and overall condition of Floridaís surface and ground water quality addressing reporting requirements of Sections 305(b) and 303(d) of the Federal Clean Water Act (CWA). Section 305(b) requires each state to report to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on the condition of its surface waters, and Section 303(d) requires each state to report on its impaired waterbodies (those not meeting water quality standards). Using the information from all the states, the EPA provides Congress with a national inventory of water quality conditions and develops priorities for future federal actions to protect and restore aquatic resources.
