The FDEP Data

The raw data received from FDEP is here.

Katrina Yancey of FDEP wrote in an email message of August 5, 2020, to which she attached this data: “We received the genetic marker results from the latest DEP trend monitoring done in July; attached is an updated spreadsheet with these results added.”

Katrina Yancey of FDEP wrote in an email message of July 17, 2020, to which she attached this data: “You're correct, DEP is fine with WWALS publishing this data. Attached is all tracer and marker data available for the response sampling events tracked on our webpage (located at https://floridadep.gov/dear/watershed-monitoring-section/content/suwannee-river-basin-sampling-locations), along with all tracer and marker data from the trend sampling sites in this area. Since the last dataset you received in May, the new results in these spreadsheets include event response sampling done by DEP in June, and DEP trend monitoring done in July. The marker results for the trend sampling haven't been analyzed yet, and I will follow up with you when those results are received.”

Since the last dataset you cited in your March email below, the new results in these spreadsheets include the final results for event response sampling done by DEP in February, and DEP trend monitoring done in March. The focus of the current ongoing DOH sampling is E. coli, as that is what determines issuance of the health advisories, and does not include tracers and markers.”

And this one goes from December 10, 2019, through January 23, 2020, in frequent intervals.
