This Act assigns water monitoring duties to the Department of Environmental Protection, and requires the Department to establish Total Daily Maximum Load (TDML) levels for water bodies throughout the state. TDMLs are published in section 62-304 of the Florida Administrative Code. This legislation also establishes a water quality credit trading program, and authorizes the Department to set best management practices for select bodies of water. However, permitting duties related to water quality are typically under the purview of local water management districts in Florida.
