The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) announces initiation of the Triennial Review of state surface water quality standards as required by the Federal Clean Water Act. All surface water quality standards in Chapter 62-4, Chapter 62-302 Chapter 62-303, and Chapter 62-304, Florida Administrative Code, are under review and may be revised as part of the Triennial Review. The workshops/hearings are designed to provide a forum for the public to recommend revisions to Florida's water quality standards, but the Department will also present information about potential revisions to Florida's water quality standards, including consideration of U.S. EPA 304(a) criteria recommendations. The Notices of Rule Development for Chapters 62-4, 62-302, 62-303, and 62-304, F.A.C., that have been published in the Florida Administrative Register are linked below for your convenience.
