As requested by the EPA in their proposed water quality standards for the State of Florida's lakes and flowing waters (Docket: EPA-HQ-OW-2009-0596), the Tampa Bay Nitrogen Management Consortium is providing feedback on appropriate nutrient loads that should be used as the numeric nutrient criteria for the Tampa Bay estuary. The attached cover letter, response and supporting attachments outline the Tampa Bay Nitrogen Management Consortium's commitment to maintaining nutrient loads to Tampa Bay that: 1) promote the recovery of seagrass, 2) provide for the protection of full aquatic life support, and 3) attain all designated uses in the estuary. The nutrient loads recommended by the Consortium in their response are those approved by FDEP and EPA through separate administrative actions.
