 Public Workshop on January 7, 2010 regarding revisions to the surface water classification system
 
Greetings,
 
The Department has received many useful comments and suggestions regarding revisions to the surface water classification system.  We appreciate all of the comments and suggestions.  Based on review of the comments received and further analysis, the draft rule language has been revised (attached).  The rule revisions are significant enough to warrant another public workshop, which has been scheduled as follows:
 
DATE AND TIME: Thursday, January 7, 2010, at 9:00 a.m.
PLACE: Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council, 4000 Gateway Centre Boulevard, Suite 100, Pinellas Park, Florida
 
Please note that we are revising the document titled “Technical Support Document: Requirements for Reclassifying the Designated Uses of Florida Surface Waters and Conducting Use Attainability Analyses”, since the proposed rule revisions affect that document.  The revised draft document will be posted before the Christmas holiday to our website at: http://www.dep.state.fl.us/secretary/designateduse.htm .  We will also post an agenda for the public workshop.
 
We look forward to your participation at this public workshop.  If you have any questions, please let me know.
