Tampa Bay was identified by the State of Florida Department of Environmental Regulation (FDER) as to the top priority for an impact study using federal 205(j) grant funding. The study was divided into two steps: first, since there are various uses of the Bay, and the state regulations do not define a numerical nutrient standard (Rule 17-3, Florida Administrative Codes), nutrient related target concentrations were developed; second, predictions of the relative impacts of point and non-point sources of nutrients were considered with the use of mathematical modeling. Studies in both of these areas is still ongoing; however, preliminary results are presented here.
