Water quality and the improvement of water resources in Florida are a key priority for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. As such, the department is proposing amendments to Chapter 62-640, F.A.C. The rule represents the department's commitment to science-based processes, by recommending changes to biosolids regulations to minimize the migration of nutrients, specifically phosphorus, to prevent impairment to waterbodies.
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.
