FINAL lists of impaired waters for the Group 1 Basins: Everglades West Coast, Lake Okeechobee, Ocklawaha, Ochlockonee – St. Marks, Suwannee, and Tampa Bay.

These lists were adopted by a Secretarial Order signed by DEP Secretary Herschel Vinyard, Jr. on February 12, 2013.  The Verified and Delist lists can be found at the links provided below and include the Office of General Counsel case numbers for the listings. Requests for an administrative hearing to challenge a listing decision must be received no later than March 13, 2013.

These lists represent the third rotation through the Group 1 basins and another step in the process of restoring impaired waters for these basins.  Now that these lists have been adopted by Secretarial Order, the Department staff will begin developing TMDLs for waters on the verified list.  A Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) represents the maximum amount of pollutant loading that can be discharged to a waterbody and still attain its designated uses.  After TMDL adoption, the next step in this process will be the development, by watershed stakeholders and DEP, of a Basin Management Action Plan (BMAP).  The BMAP will specify the activities, schedule, and funding sources that point and nonpoint source dischargers will undertake to restore the waterbody.

The next rotation through these basins is scheduled to begin in July 2017.
