EPA/WATER RIN: 2040-AF21 Publication ID: Spring 2014 
Title: Water Quality Standards for the State of Florida's Estuaries and Coastal Waters 
Abstract: Consistent with the terms of a 2009 303(c)(4)(B) determination and Consent Decree, on November 30, 2012, EPA signed proposed criteria for Florida's estuaries and coastal waters not otherwise covered by EPA-approved state numeric nutrient criteria, and inland flowing waters in the South Florida Nutrient Watershed Region (77 FR 74923). On November 30, 2012, June 27, 2013, and September 26, 2013, EPA approved numeric nutrient standards adopted by the state of Florida for certain waters in the state. Finally, a January 7, 2014 ruling by the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida granting EPA's motion to modify the consent decree allows EPA to withdraw the overlapping federally-promulgated criteria so Florida can implement their state-adopted, EPA-approved criteria to address nutrient pollution in Florida's waters.
