62-304.725: Southeast Coast Basin TMDLs
PURPOSE AND EFFECT: The Department is to adopt nutrient Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) and their allocations for the Pompano Canal.
SUMMARY: The TMDL addresses the nutrient impairment in the Pompano Canal, which was verified as impaired by nutrients using the methodology established in Chapter 62-303, Identification of Impaired Surface Waters, Florida Administrative Code. The methodology used for developing this TMDL includes using a simple regression model as the best method available to estimate the loading capacity of the canal.
SUMMARY OF STATEMENT OF ESTIMATED REGULATORY COSTS: The Department does not plan to prepare a Statement of Estimated Regulatory Cost (SERC) for this proposed Rule.
Any person who wishes to provide information regarding a statement of estimated regulatory costs, or provide a proposal for a lower cost regulatory alternative must do so in writing within 21 days of this notice.

(1) There are no permitted National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System wastewater discharges to the
(2) The Wasteload Allocation for discharges subject to the Department’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Municipal Stormwater Permitting Program is a 15.8 percent reduction of current anthropogenic Total Nitrogen (TN) loading and a 13.6 percent reduction of current anthropogenic Total Phosphorus (TP) loading, based on measured concentrations from the 1999 to 2002 time period,
(3) The Load Allocation for nonpoint sources is a 15.8 percent reduction of current anthropogenic Total Nitrogen (TN) loading and a 13.6 percent reduction of current anthropogenic Total Phosphorus (TP) loading based, on measured concentrations from the 1999 to 2002 time period, and
(4) The Margin of Safety is implicit.
