Turbidity plumes in Tampa Bay, Florida, produced during ship-channel dredging operations from February to Augustwere monitored in order to document plume appearance and water quality, evaluate plume influence on the characteristics of Tampa Bay water, and provide a data base for comparison with other areas that have similar sediment, dredge, placement, containment, and tide.

Water quality standards associated with dredging have become more stringent, requiring better monitoring and prediction. Here, we describe the dynamics and development of plumes generated during two dredging cycles and how they vary with respect to time and distance from the dredging by: 1.

The site designated is square-shaped, centered at 27°3r27"N, 83°04'54"W, covers 4 nmi2, and is 18 nmi southwest of the mouth of Tampa Bay, Florida. The site will receive designation for a period of three years for the disposal of dredged material resulting from dredging from the Tampa Bay area.

The beauty of water quality for the Everglades often escapes the human eye. It is very much unlike the beauty of the feathered Snail Kite or the secretive marsh bird. To see the glory of pristine water quality, you must view the water through the shoots and roots of native Everglades flora.
