Bacterial Water Quality Criteria

FDEP Initiative to Protect Recreational Waters: The Department announces a new initiative to protect beaches and other recreational waters. The Department now has new laboratory tools and assessment methods to identify and reduce the sources of pathogens in recreational waters. The Department has initiated rule development in Chapters 62-302, 62-303, and 62-304, F.A.C., to develop new rules that refine water quality standards to take advantage of this new technology and the data that will be available to make beach and recreational waters safer.
