The FWRMC (Council) promotes information sharing among stakeholders that participate in monitoring efforts and management for marine waters, fresh surface waters, and groundwater in Florida. Council members include members of state, local and federal organizations. By fostering communication, cooperation and collaboration, the Council is working to:

  • coordinate water resource data collection in a way that reduces redundant data;
  • improve data sharing by increasing data comparability among member agencies, affiliates and stakeholders;
  • provide input into developing the Florida WIN data repository;
  • improve the scientific and legal defensibility of collected data;
  • compile and disseminate data concerning the hydrological, chemical, physical and biological properties of Florida’s waters;
  • ensure that water managers have the best science available for decision-making.

The FWRMC has a Work Plan. The Council periodically holds planning meetings and themed meetings to discuss topics of general interest. The Council Chair is a non-voting, advisory position that provides guidance to the Council.
For more information or to get involved with the Council, contact Council Liaison Carolyn Voyles

 Workgroups

The FWRMC accomplishes its goals through projects by its workgroups: 

  • Salinity Network Workgroup
  • Continuous Monitoring Workgroup – The FWRMC workgroup assisted DEP's Continuous Monitoring (CM) Workgroup in completing a statewide survey of CM equipment users, equipment/operational information, sampling procedures, and data availability.  The CM survey is a resource for monitoring groups considering CM. The survey is posted on the Florida Lake Management Society website, under Resources.
