Study Title: Analysis of Historical Water-Quality Data
Overview & Objective(s): The study provides a review and analysis of historical water-quality data in BCNP, BBNP, ENP, and LNWR and nearby waters of south Florida. This information will help establish water-quality standards and baseline conditions in the parks, and will help evaluate the potential effects of CERP on water quality. Objectives include: (1) assemble, review and edit water-quality data and provide a working data base; (2) analyze and evaluate the data and prepare interpretative reports on historical water-quality conditions and trends in BCNP, ENP, LNWR, and other DOI lands. These analyses will provide a baseline for evaluating how CERP might affect water quality in the parks and refuge.
Status: Active; on-going.
