Water Quality Status
Finding information about various water quality conditions can be confusing. Not only are there many types of contamination, but there are multiple public agencies in Florida with different roles overseeing freshwater and coastal systems. Below are links to some of the key monitoring sites on the most common issues:
Algal Bloom Dashboard
Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP)
Monitoring for Cyanobacteria species
Our Independent Monitoring
Calusa Waterkeeper currently performs monthly prioritized testing for Fecal Indicator Bacteria, and occasionally Cyanobacteria, in Southwest Florida. Our rangers are trained in sampling collection protocols and are unpaid volunteers.
