DEP Sets Up Website to Monitor Water Quality Issues

Post Date:06/13/2018 8:21 PM

To ensure the health and safety of our state’s residents and visitors, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection is committed to keeping Floridians updated on current algal blooms and how the state is responding to protect human health, water quality and the environment.

Here is a quick summary of recent response activities and remind you that DEP places monitoring and testing information, including sampling locations, as well as sample results as soon as they are available here:  Algal Bloom Sampling Results.

In response to the recently reported algal blooms, monitoring staff were deployed to survey and, if a bloom was observed, collect samples. Observations and laboratory results continue to indicate localized patches of algae with low to non-detect levels of algal toxins.  

DEP, the five water management districts (WMDs), the Florida Department of Health (DOH), the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (DACS) all work together to respond to algal blooms, each with a specific role. All federal, state and local agencies will continue to respond as quickly and efficiently as possible to both observed and reported algal blooms. Persistent blooms are routinely monitored and retested, and staff also regularly review satellite imagery and aerial photography, when available, to inform the development of daily sampling plans.
