This statewide map shows the locations of a series of EcoSummary Reports written by FDEP staff from 2010 through the present. Intended for a wide audience, the reports summarize the biological health and water quality conditions for a single freshwater stream, lake, or spring. Reports include a map and a description of the sampling location, photos of the site, tables of water quality and assessment sampling results, recommendations for future monitoring, and who to contact for more information.
DEP is coordinating with local stakeholders and we began water quality monitoring of Port Manatee on March 30, 2021. This data will enable us to protect public health and safety, evaluate any environmental impacts and support the department's full enforcement against HRK for any damages to our state’s resources.
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is the state’s lead agency for environmental management and stewardship – protecting our air, water and land. The vision of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection is to create strong community partnerships, safeguard Florida’s natural resources and enhance its ecosystems.
