The ERC members are selected by the governor and are representative of agriculture, the development industry, local government, the environmental community, residents, and members of the scientific and technical community who have substantial expertise in the areas of the fate and transport of water pollutants, toxicology, epidemiology, geology, biology, environmental sciences, or engineering.
The ERC is charged with setting statutorily specified air and water quality standards by evaluating their scientific and technical validity, economic impacts, and risks and benefits to the public and Florida’s natural resources.
