Summary

Through geochemical monitoring efforts, this project will provide a measure of the progress and effects of restoration on environmental health and water quality, and complement biological monitoring of indicator species.

This project will monitor changes in critical biogeochemical processes in Florida Bay relative to water quality changes as South Florida restoration proceeds. FY2000 efforts focused on establishing baseline data from which to evaluate restoration progress. Continued geochemical monitoring efforts will provide a measure of the progress and effects of restoration on environmental health and water quality, and complement biological monitoring of indicator species. This information is essential for identifying when successful restoration has been accomplished. Additionally, this geochemical monitoring program will serve as a model for developing similar programs for monitoring other coastal and lacustrine environments targeted in future projects.
