2012 Progress Report for the Lower St. Johns River Basin Tributaries Basin Management Action Plan II
Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) are water quality targets for specific pollutants (such as fecal coliform) 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) II includes 15 of these 75 impaired tributaries. FDEP adopted TMDLs in 2006 for Williamson Creek, Moncrief Creek, and Wills Branch. FDEP adopted TMDLs in 2009 for McCoy Creek, Deep Bottom Creek, Blockhouse Creek, Sherman Creek, Pottsburg Creek, Middle Trout River, and Lower Trout River. In addition, FDEP adopted TMDLs in 2010 for Craig Creek, Fishing Creek, Hopkins Creek, Cormorant Branch, and Greenfield Creek. The LSJR Tributaries BMAP II was adopted by Secretarial Order in August 2010 as a plan to implement these TMDLs. This 2012 Progress Report is the second annual progress report for the LSJR Tributaries BMAP II, and it describes the activities implemented by the stakeholders during the reporting period of September 1, 2011 through December 31, 2012.
