What is a watershed? A watershed is simply the geographic area through which water flows across the land and drains into a common body of water, whether a stream, river, lake, or ocean. Much of the water comes from rainfall and the stormwater runoff. The quality and quantity of stormwater is affected by all the alterations to the land–agriculture, roadways, urban development,- and the activities of people within a watershed. Watersheds are usually separated from other watersheds by naturally elevated areas.

Why are watersheds important? Because the surface water features and stormwater runoff within a watershed ultimately drain to other bodies of water, it is essential to consider these downstream impacts when developing and implementing water quality protection and restoration actions. Everything upstream ends up downstream. We need to remember that we all live downstream and that our everyday activities can affect downstream waters.

Florida’s Watershed Management Program was created to embrace this holistic, ecosystem-based approach and to integrate Florida’s longstanding water quality protection programs into more effective, comprehensive action. The program specifically implements the provisions of the Florida Watershed Restoration Act of 1999, section 403.067, Florida Statutes, but it encompasses other legal authorities, voluntary programs and practices, public education, and financial assistance, all directed at cleaning up water pollution or preventing it in the first place.

Watersheds are natural features. Florida has 52 large watersheds or basins. In order to best protect and restore them, DEP has grouped these watersheds into 29 groups of basins to make environmental management easier, more effective and more uniform across programs. The map below reflects the major watersheds in Florida.
Florida’s Watrershed Basins

Major Identified Watersheds in Florida

The water body restoration and watershed management program is conducted on a Rotating Basin cycle that is conducted over a five year period (See basin 411 for more information). The cycle consists of the following steps:

Watershed Monitoring and Data Management – Conducts Florida’s surface and ground water monitoring programs, including cooperative efforts with other agencies in the state that monitor water quality and quantity. It also integrates monitoring data into a centralized statewide repository.

* More water quality data and other sources of environmental information are available at DEP’s Water Data Central.

Watershed Assessment – Using data from the monitoring program and other sources, this section evaluates the impacts of wastewater facilities, industries, agriculture, septic tanks, urban development and other sources of pollution on Florida’s surface waters. Every two years a statewide assessment of the health of Florida’s surface and ground waters is conducted and summarized in the “305(b) Report” which is required by Section 305(b) of the Federal Clean Water Act. Each year, an assessment is done for the basins within one of the five groups of basins leading to the development and adoption of the Verified List of Impaired Waters, which identifies surface waters that do not meet water quality standards (“impaired waters”). Florida’s surface water quality standards are set forth primarily in rule 62-302, Florida Administrative Code, and the associated table of water quality criteria. However, the Verified List is developed using the methodology specified within the Impaired Waters Rule, Chapter 62-303, F.A.C., which has been adopted as water quality standards for the purposes of these assessments.

Watershed Evaluation and TMDL Development – For those waters that are impaired, water quality restoration targets, called Total Maximum Daily Loads or TMDLs, are developed and adopted into Chapter 62-304, F.A.C.

* What is a TMDL? A scientific determination of the maximum amount of a given pollutant that a surface water can absorb and still meet the water quality standards that protect human health and aquatic life. Water bodies that do not meet water quality standards are identified as impaired for the particular pollutants of concern–nutrients, bacteria, mercury, etc.–and TMDLs must be developed, adopted and implemented for those pollutants to reduce pollutants and clean up the water body.

Watershed Planning and Coordination – Coordinates the activities of the watershed restoration program with local government and business leaders, environmental groups, interested citizens, and other local stakeholders. Staff in this section lead the development of local Basin Management Action Plans (BMAPs) to implement the requirements of TMDLs.

* What is a BMAP? A comprehensive set of strategies–permit limits on wastewater facilities, urban and agricultural best management practices, conservation programs, financial assistance and revenue generating activities, etc.–designed to implement the pollutant reductions established by the TMDL. These broad-based plans are developed in conjunction with local stakeholders–they rely on local input and local commitment–and they are adopted by Secretarial Order to be enforceable.

Nonpoint Source Management – Coordinated implementation of Florida’s nonpoint source management program which strives to reduce pollution from everyday human activities (also known as “Pointless Personal Pollution”). Administers the “Section 319” grant program, which provides some $8 million annually to local governments to implement projects–stormwater retrofits, best management practices, public education–that reduce or promote the reduction of contaminants from stormwater and other nonpoint sources of pollution.

Ground Water Protection – Assesses the quality of Florida’s ground water resources, which serve as the source of drinking water for more than 90% of Florida’s residents and visitors. Conducts assessments of loading of pollutants from the ground water into surface waters and conducts research to better identify the sources of pollutants in ground water. Works with the watershed program and other DEP programs to assure protection of ground water resources, which are intimately connected with Florida’s surface waters through spring systems, wetlands, ground water recharge areas, and other places where surface and ground waters interact.

Florida’s rivers, streams, lakes, estuaries, and coastal waters are spectacularly beautiful. More than that, they are essential natural resources, supplying the water necessary for aquatic life, both large and microscopic; drinking water; recreation; industry; fishing and shellfish harvesting; and agriculture. Florida’s multi-billion tourist industry would vanish if our water resources were irreparably degraded.

Protecting these abundant water resource, restoring them when they become damaged because of unmanaged growth and development, and preserving them for the future is your responsibility and ours.

DEP’s Divisions of Water Resource Management and Environmental Assessment and Restoration implement a wide range of programs to protect and restore Florida’s surface waters. Tour this website and you will find dozens of different strategies and activities underway to benefit water quality. At the heart of these efforts, particularly in identifying water quality problems and establishing clean-up objectives, is the Watershed Assessment program.

Water Data Central has been created to serve as a window on the data, environmental programs, and other useful information and reports about water that are available from the department and its partner environmental and public health agencies. It will continue to evolve as more data sources become available and as more tools are developed for searching the data, analyzing them, graphing them, mapping them, and using them to make better and better environmental decisions to assess, restore, and protect Florida’s unique water resources in the future.

Data – This will take you to a list of linked data sites and sources, both the department’s and those of other agencies, that can be followed to review available water data on a variety of subjects in a variety of formats and, in some cases, to manipulate and download the data.

Programs – This will take you to a list of linked important program sites related to water issues. Many of these same programs are available from the main Water webpage.

State of the Environment – This link will take you to various reports that summarize data, assess water quality and quantity, and otherwise synthesize complex issues into a more comprehensible picture of the state of Florida’s environment. Reports will be added and updated as they become available.

Search by Location – This interactive mapping website enables you to display locations and data layers on a map. It lets you choose the information you want from over 90 layers provided by a variety of programs and partnering agencies. Map layers include DEP regulated facilities, FEMA flood zones, land use / land cover, aerial photography, elevation, USGS quad maps, and many more. You choose the base map, data layers, and special features, and create your own special purpose, custom maps. Additionally, this has powerful analytical tools, like the “Resources-at-Risk” report which identifies environmental concerns and regulated entities within a certain radius of a point you select on the map.

Integrating ground water into FDEP’s watershed management approach has required an expansion in the approaches for both monitoring design and data analysis to include ground water–surface water issues. Historically, the majority of ground water protection efforts emphasized land use and aquifer vulnerability, as well as investigating and remediating local point sources of contamination to protect potable water supplies. Integrating ground water into watershed protection, however, has required the additional consideration of ground water contributions to surface waterbodies (i.e., base flow). The water quality of base flow is now also considered an equally important ground water use to ensure the support of aquatic life in surface waterbodies. Identifying and quantifying ground water contributions where substances with extensive natural or anthropogenic abundances in geological deposits coexist with high percentages of base flow are also important in evaluating impaired surface waters.

FDEP has developed a methodology and screening tools to evaluate and identify ground water resource issues and potential influences of ground water on surface water quality within Florida’s watershed management cycle. The findings of these evaluations are used in guiding future monitoring and assessment efforts, identifying potential private well sampling needs, and identifying more detailed evaluations to determine ground water’s influence on impaired or potentially impaired surface waters.

The Ground Water Protection Program conducts activities that assess and protect the state’s ground water resources, integrating ground water protection activities into Florida’s watershed program. Activities include conducting basin-scale and detailed ground water evaluations and assessments, development of ground water-surface water interaction assessment tools, management of the USEPA Section 106 ground water grant, management of research and monitoring projects under Florida’s Springs Initiative, oversight of agricultural best management practice ground water monitoring studies, and participation in evaluations of new pesticides that have potential ground water impacts.

Programs Administered Under Ground Water Protection:

* Ground Water – Surface Water Interaction & Basin Assessments

* Springs Initiative

* Data Assessments & Statistics

* Agrichemical Effects – Pesticides and Best Management Practices (BMPs)

* Technical Support – Ground Water

Historically, Florida’s ground water monitoring activities focused almost entirely on protecting drinking water supplies. In addition to this focus, FDEP now also integrates ground water data into its watershed assessments to help in the evaluation of ground water impacts on surface water quality. This is especially important in Florida, where ground water discharges into streams, canals, lakes, and estuaries and can provide as much as 80 percent of the total flow to some surface waters. Because of this ground water–surface water interaction, it is important to assess ground water quality, identify potential pollutants, establish whether they are likely to be discharged to surface water, and identify any potential impacts that may already be expressed as surface water impairments.

The protection of water resources is enhanced by collecting and managing various types of ground water and springs data. Springs and ground water data are collected from various FDEP programs and other agencies and then integrated into a new centralized repository. These data are managed to support the development of Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) for potentially impaired waters, spring system assessments, ground water to surface water interaction investigations and statewide drinking water assessments. Data are catalogued and mapped to maximize the identification of natural and anthropogenic substances of concern for particular aquifers. Automated computer functions allow routine ground water reports to be generated with ease along with supporting descriptive statistics and other calculations that indicate whether the water resource meets its designated use for potable water supply or the support of aquatic life.

MP verification monitoring is conducted to measure adopted fertilization and pesticide application best management practice’s ability to protect ground water. This monitoring is conducted after the BMP has been demonstrated to work on a small scale and has been implemented at an industry-wide scale. Monitoring is conducted on a suite of agricultural sites that have been selected as representative of the agricultural practice. Samples are collected quarterly for a period ranging from three to five years to determine if the newly adopted management practice will result in a widespread improvement throughout the industry. The Ground Water Protection Section participates in monthly meetings with the Florida Department of Agriculture to discuss potential ground water impacts of newly registered pesticides.

One of the important functions (past, present and future) of the GWPS is to provide ground water technical support in house, to other agencies, and to the public. These functions include:

GW-SW interaction investigation method development and evaluation (seepage meters, geochemical tracer methods, and radon method, sediment interstitial water field sampling technology, modeling, etc.)

* Ground Water Physical and Geochemical Modeling
* TMDL-PLRG-BMAP related GW issues (cooperation, review, supplementation with TMDL program modelers and basin working groups)
* Ground water contaminant source evaluations
* Springs Initiative technical document review

Special topics, past and ongoing projects:

* Septic tank technology – pollution and associated issues
* Florida Aquifer Vulnerability Assessment (FAVA) project participant – in association with Florida Geological Survey
* Industrial Wastewater Task Force and Percolation Pond (surface source)
* Spreadsheet modeling
* State mandated Lake Belt Well Field Protection Project
* Springshed size calculation
* Delineation of aquifer intrusion by industrial wastewater discharged into waterways using GW numerical, statistical, and chemical modeling
* Fenholloway River – ground water-surface water interaction modeling.

ining and Minerals Regulation Program Areas

Dam Safety
Dam Safety in Florida is regulated through several rules, which vary by activity and location. The coordination of these regulations is through the Mining and Minerals Regulation Program.

Environmental Resources
The environmental resources program provides ecological planning and support for the other mine reclamation programs.

Mandatory Nonphosphate
The mandatory nonphosphate program administers the laws and regulations related to the reclamation of mined land and the protection of water resources (water quality, water quantity and wetlands) at mines extracting heavy minerals, fuller’s earth, limestone, dolomite & shell, gravel, sand, dirt, clay, peat, and other solid resources (except phosphate).

Mandatory Phosphate
The mandatory phosphate program is responsible for administering the rules related to the reclamation of lands mined for phosphate after June 1975 and the rules related to Environmental and Wetland Resource Permits for phosphate mined lands.

Mine Safety
The mine safety training program provides mine safety training throughout Florida.

Nonmandatory Reimbursement
The nonmandatory land reclamation program was designed to provide funding for the reclamation of eligible phosphate lands mined before July 1975.

Oil and Gas
The Oil and Gas Program is the permitting and regulatory authority for parties interested in exploration or production of hydrocarbons in Florida. Primary responsibilities include conservation of oil and gas resources, correlative rights protection, maintenance of health and human safety, and environmental protection.

Phosphogypsum Management
The Phosphogypsum Management Program regulates (permitting, compliance, enforcement) the design, construction, operation and maintenance of phosphogypsum stack systems.

Program Management and Evaluation
The Program Management and Evaluation Program provides programmatic support to the other Mining and Minerals Regulation programs, in addition to contract management and administration of the Nonmandatory Reimbursement program.

* Nonmandatory Reimbursement The nonmandatory land reclamation program was designed to provide funding for the reclamation of eligible phosphate lands mined before July 1975.

Technical Support
The Technical Support Program provides engineering and hydrologic support to the other Mining and Minerals Regulation programs.

Dam safety in Florida is a shared responsibility among the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), the regional water management districts, the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), the local government and private dam owners. Owete S. Owete, PhD, PE, Program Administrator in the FDEP Bureau of Mining and Minerals Regulation (BMMR), coordinates the activities of the State Dam Safety Program. As the State Dam Safety Officer, Dr. Owete, is the State Representative to the Association of State Dam Safety Officials.

Current Florida Regulations Regarding Dam Safety

Dam safety in Florida is regulated through several rules, which vary by activity and location.

* Chapter 373 Water Resources
* Northwest Florida Water Management District, Chapter 40A-4 F.A.C
* Suwannee River Water Management District
* St. John’s River Water Management District
* Southwest Florida Water Management District
* South Florida Water Management District (See page 98)
* Phosphate Management Rule 62-672
* BMPs for Non-Clay, Phosphate Mining and Reclamation Berms and Impoundments

Dam Safety Program Activities

Information gathering and reporting are conducted by the BMMR to maintain the Florida database for over 850 non-federal dams. The dam data and the supporting statistics of the Dam Safety Program are periodically uploaded to the National Inventory of Dams (NID).

Dam safety training is provided by the BMMR for state, regional, and local regulatory agency personnel and dam owners, with the assistance of the ASDSO, in accordance with the performance requirements of the dam safety grant provided through the National Dam Safety Program led by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

Dam inspections in Florida are conducted by agency personnel at the state, regional, and local levels, as related to their respective regulatory programs, as well as by private dam owners. Oversight for phosphate mining and similar industrial impoundments is primarily the responsibility of the FDEP. Other dams generally fall within the purview of the USACE, the State’s five regional water management districts, or local government agencies.
