MDL/PQL Targets for Approved Analytical Methods

Subsection 62-4.246(4), F.A.C., requires DEP to establish and publish a list of target MDLs and PQLs for published analytical methods that may be used for the analysis of wastewater, surface water and groundwater.  This list was initially published in 2006 and revised in 2019. However, additional revisions are currently underway. The revised list will be available for public comment once completed. Check back here for updates. Permittees should continue to use the 2006 list as referenced in their DEP permits.
