2012 Progress Report for the Lower St. Johns River Mainstem Basin Management Action Plan
The Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) for the main stem of the Lower St. Johns River (LSJR) Basin were adopted by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) in June 2008. The TMDLs target total phosphorus (TP) and total nitrogen (TN) in the freshwater reach to achieve reductions in the chlorophyll-a levels in this portion of the river. In addition, a TN TMDL was established in the marine reach to meet dissolved oxygen (DO) levels that would be protective of aquatic life uses. The LSJR Mainstem Basin Management Action Plan (BMAP) was adopted in October 2008 to implement these TMDLs. This 2012 Progress Report is the fourth annual progress report for the LSJR Mainstem BMAP, and it describes the major accomplishments and issues identified during the reporting period of January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2012 as well as an analysis of water quality trends since BMAP implementation.
