The 1999 Florida Legislature has concluded that the development of a total maximum daily load
program will promote improvements in water quality throughout the state through the
coordinated control of point and nonpoint sources of pollution. The scientifically based total
maximum daily load program was found to be necessary to fairly and equitably allocate pollution
loads to both nonpoint and point sources.
