To receive public comments on draft nutrient total maximum daily load (TMDL) reports for impaired waters in the Charlotte Harbor Basin, to be adopted in Rule 62-304.805, F.A.C. These nutrient TMDLs, if adopted, will constitute site specific numeric interpretations of the narrative nutrient criterion set forth in paragraph 62-302.530(47)(b), F.A.C., that would replace the otherwise applicable numeric nutrient criteria in subsection 62-302.531(2) for these particular waters. The TMDLs to be presented at the public workshop include TMDLs for Sanibel Slough West (WBID 2092F1) and Sanibel Slough East (WBID 2092F2). The draft TMDL documents for these impaired waters will be placed on the Department’s TMDL website (http://www.dep.state.fl.us/water/tmdl/) by February 2, 2017 and will be provided upon request to interested parties by mail or via email distribution. The department will accept written comments on the draft TMDLs, as well as the establishment of these nutrient TMDLs as site specific interpretations of the narrative nutrient criterion, through March 3, 2017. Written comments should be directed to: Ansel Bubel, Administrator, Watershed Evaluation and TMDL Section, Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Mail Station 3555, 2600 Blair Stone Road, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-2400 or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
