Grant Description
The purpose of the WQPP is to recommend priority corrective actions and compliance schedules addressing point and nonpoint sources of pollution to restore and maintain the chemical, physical, and biological integrity of the Sanctuary.

In addition, the Act requires the development of a comprehensive water quality monitoring program.

EPA has provided the majority of funding for the monitoring activities and the special studies projects with assistance from NOAA, South Florida Water Management District, Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), Monroe County, and private environmental groups. This announcement concerns the monitoring and data management components of the WQPP that have been incorporated into the FKNMS's Science Plan.
