TMDL Report: Dissolved Oxygen TMDL for Sixteen Mile Creek, WBID 2589
This report presents the Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) for dissolved oxygen (DO) forSixteen Mile Creek in the Deep Creek Planning Unit of the Lower St. Johns River Basin. The creek was verified as impaired for DO during the first cycle, and was included on the Verified List of impaired waters for the Lower St. Johns River Basin that was adopted by Secretarial Order in May 2004. The impairment was confirmed during the second cycle assessment that was completed in May 2009. In the first cycle assessment the DO impairment was associated with elevated algal biomass in 2002. This TMDL establishes the allowable loadings to Sixteen Mile Creek that would restore the waterbody so that it meets its applicable water quality criterion for DO.
