"The Southeast Florida coast includes the counties of Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach (~25.6 to ~26.9N latitude), containing about 142 km of coastline extending approximately parallel to the flow of the Florida Current to the east. The region contains three non-continuous reef tracts containing ecosystems of significant economic, ecological, and aesthetic value to the 5.5 million residents therein (2010). This area also contains significant point sources of pollution, i.e., five important ocean inlets and six treated-wastewater outfalls, and two ocean dredged materials disposal sites (ODMDS). The task of conserving and managing this important ecosystem is performed by Florida's Department of Environmental Protection, including developing a consistent and effective regulatory process. In the past, standards for inland and coastal water quality were written as narrative standards, viz., in no case shall nutrient concentrations of body of water be altered so as to cause an imbalance in natural populations of flora or fauna. The primary "nutrients" referred to are nitrogen and phosphorous. The impetus for the work described herein is the surface water quality monitoring plan requirement associated with the permitting of wastewater ocean outfalls by the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department.
