Kings Bay Restoration Plan (BMAP) Meeting

Runs through Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015 

Time & Place

1:30 PM EDT
City of Crystal River Conference Room; Crystal River City Hall; 123 NW Highway 19; Crystal River, FL 34428

event thumbnail

On June 3, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection will host a meeting to discuss and further develop a long-term restoration plan for Crystal River and the King’s Bay spring system. Stakeholders and interested members of the public are invited to attend. DEP staff will outline the restoration plan development process, discuss pollutant sources as well as potential water quality improvement projects.

"DEP wants to ensure that the local public and stakeholders are part of our restoration process,” said Tom Frick, director of the Division of Environmental Assessment and Restoration. “These meetings are an opportunity for involved citizens to be part of the conversation.”

Nutrient pollution, or an excess of nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorous, is one of the primary challenges to water quality restoration across the state. Nutrients are naturally present in water and necessary for the healthy growth of plant and animal life; however, an excess of nutrients can lead to water quality problems like rapid growth of algal mats, habitat smothering and oxygen depletion in the water.

A copy of the meeting agenda can be found at the web link below.

To combat water pollution, DEP first develops a restoration goal known as a TMDL. The TMDL, or total maximum daily load, identifies the maximum amount of a specific pollutant that may be present in a given water body for the water body to remain healthy and functional. The TMDL then functions as the target for a restoration plan, called a BMAP or basin management action plan. The BMAP is a five-year plan with set milestones that identifies projects and strategies to reduce pollution or eliminate pollutant sources. This meeting will further develop the BMAP for Crystal River and the King’s Bay spring system.

King’s Bay is the sixth largest spring system in Florida and is adjacent to the city of Crystal River. The spring system constitutes a vital cultural and economic resource for the state. King’s Bay is also the largest winter refuge for manatees on the Florida Gulf Coast and is considered a National Wildlife Refuge. It is a popular ecotourism destination for wildlife viewing, diving, snorkeling, fishing and boating. The system was designated an Outstanding Florida Water by the state of Florida.

Weeki Wachee Springs Restoration Plan (BMAP) Meeting

Runs through Thursday, June 4th, 2015 

Time & Place

1:30 PM EDT
Southwest Florida Water Management District Office, Room 112, 2379 Broad Street, Brooksville, FL 34604

event thumbnail

On June 4, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection will be hosting a meeting to further the development of a long-term restoration plan for the Weeki Wachee springs system. Stakeholders and interested members of the public are invited to attend. DEP staff will outline the restoration plan development process, discuss pollutant sources in the basin and identify potential water quality improvement projects.

“Weeki Wachee is a historic landmark and a valuable natural resource for our state,” said Tom Frick, director of the Division of Environmental Assessment and Restoration. “We are working alongside stakeholders and the public to develop the most effective and informed restoration plan possible.”

Nutrient pollution, or an excess of nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorous, is one of the primary challenges to water quality restoration across the state. Nutrients are naturally present in water and necessary for the healthy growth of plant and animal life; however, an excess of nutrients, can lead to water quality problems like the rapid growth of algal mats, habitat smothering and oxygen depletion in the water.

To combat water pollution, DEP first develops a restoration goal known as a TMDL. The TMDL, or total maximum daily load, identifies the maximum amount of a specific pollutant that may be present in a given water body for the water body to remain healthy and functional. The TMDL then functions as the primary target for a restoration plan, called a BMAP or basin management action plan. The BMAP is a five-year plan with set milestones that identifies projects and strategies to reduce pollution or eliminate pollutant sources. This meeting will further the development of the BMAP for the Weeki Wachee springs system.

Weeki Wachee is a historic and world-renowned tourist attraction which has delighted visitors with an iconic underwater mermaid show since 1947. Weeki Wachee State Park is built around the spring and acts as an environmental and recreational resource for the state. Weeki Wachee Springs and several smaller springs form the headwaters of the Weeki Wachee River, a clear, swift water run that flows westward into the Gulf of Mexico.

Please save the date for a Technical Meeting for the Basin Management Action Plan (BMAP) for Volusia Blue Spring. Note that everyone is welcome to attend this public meeting. Meeting topics will include initial discussions on management strategies (projects) to reduce or eliminate nitrate loading within the BMAP basin, an update on the progress of the Draft Volusia Blue BMAP Nitrogen Source Inventory and Loading Tool (NSILT), and a presentation on water resource funding opportunities.

The meeting agenda can be accessed through the WEB link below.

The BMAP is the means for implementation of the adopted Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs). The nutrient total maximum daily load (TMDL) for nitrate for the Blue Spring was adopted on July 17, 2014. The next step is to develop a BMAP to specify how the required reductions will be achieved. The BMAP will be the formal implementation plan to achieve the TMDL.

Please feel free to contact me if you have questions, 850-245-8460 or e-mail moira.homann@dep.state.fl.us. As always, thank you for your interest and participation.
