The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is collaborating with other key agencies to monitor and report on water conditions, starting with some areas at greatest risk, to keep you informed on water quality and what you can do.
Protecting Florida Together’s water quality status tool has been developed to deliver to Florida citizens and other interested parties information as it relates to water quality in three major waterbodies in South Florida – the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee rivers, their respective estuaries and Lake Okeechobee. These waterbodies were selected as they are currently recognized to be among those systems at the greatest risk of adverse impacts due to poor water quality. Learn more and check water quality status by visiting ProtectingFloridatogether.gov.
