The Division of Environmental Assessment and Restoration (DEAR) is charged with monitoring and assessing Florida's surface water and groundwater quality; identifying, verifying and prioritizing pollution problems; developing strategies to resolve the problems; and implementing those strategies through comprehensive restoration actions in partnership with local stakeholders. The Update expands and enhances baseline groundwater information on a regional scale, identifies challenges associated with sustainable groundwater management and helps guide implementation of diverse resource management strategies. Statewide and regional findings, data gaps and recommendations to improve groundwater management also are included.

Other groundwater monitoring conducted in the basin assesses releases of hazardous materials to the environment. These wells are typically near metropolitan areas and the resulting data are provided to the Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB). These wells are extremely useful because they typically monitor the first water encountered, which. risk to groundwater. Groundwater protection zoning also has a key role in setting priorities for groundwater quality monitoring, environmental audit of industrial premises, pollution control within the agricultural advisory system, determining priorities for the clean-up of historically-contaminated land, and in public education generally. California Water Quality Monitoring Council (CA Senate Bill ) Background. In November , a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed by the Secretaries of the California Environmental Protection Agency (CalEPA) and the California Natural Resources Agency to establish the California Water Quality Monitoring Council (Monitoring Council). The MOU was mandated by CA Senate Bill . Guidelines for the management of water quality in Australia were developed as part of the National Water Quality Management Strategy (NWQMS).Guideline documents provide information tailored to meet the needs of water quality managers in achieving quality and supply of water that is fit for purpose.
