2012 Progress Report for the Lower St. Johns River Basin Tributaries Basin Management Action Plan I

Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) are water quality targets for specific pollutants (such as fecal coliforms) that are established for impaired waterbodies that do not meet designated uses based on Florida water quality standards. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) identified 75 tributaries in the Lower St. Johns River (LSJR) Basin as verified impaired for fecal coliforms. The LSJR Tributaries Basin Management Action Plan (BMAP) I includes 10 of these 75 impaired tributaries. FDEP adopted TMDLs in 2006 for Miramar Creek, Butcher Pen Creek, Hogan Creek, and Goodbys Creek. FDEP then adopted TMDLs in 2009 for Miller Creek, Big Fishweir Creek, Newcastle Creek, Deer Creek, Terrapin Creek, and Open Creek. The LSJR Tributaries BMAP I was adopted by Secretarial Order in December 2009 as a plan to implement these TMDLs. This 2012 Progress Report is the third annual progress report for the LSJR Tributaries BMAP I, and it describes the activities implemented by the stakeholders during the reporting period of January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2012.
