The Hillsborough County Environmental Protection Act charges the Environmental Protection commission with the function of establishing, operating and maintaining a continuous program for monitoring water pollution. A county-wide water quality surveillance network has been designed to enable the staff to determine compliance with the Act and to determine whether the level of water pollution is increasing or decreasing throughout the county.
These data, obtained during 1972-1987 may provide useful background for eventual development, revision _ and enforcement of regulations, standard effluent limitation plans, or programs established under the Federal Water Pollution Control Act of 1972.
