Water Quality Report Cards
FDEP’s Watershed Monitoring Section manages two statewide water monitoring programs, the Status and Trend Networks. Each network answers questions
about the conditions of Florida’s surface and ground water. Both networks collect data used to develop protection and restoration goals. FDEP has
produced two interactive tools, the
Status Report Card and the
Trend Report Card, to present results to a variety of users.
This network gives an annual snapshot of statewide water conditions. Results are used to calculate the portion of waters meeting water quality
standards. This network is not designed to answer questions about specific waterbodies.
- Visit the Status Network web page for the history of the
network, sampling methods, and previous years’ reports.

Design Document for the current monitoring design, resources sampled, indicators, and thresholds.
This network tracks long-term changes in water quality at fixed sites. Results are used to describe the changes in specific wells and waterbodies
