Pinellas County monitors County waterbodies to determine if waters are “fishable and swimmable” or are in need of improvement. If a waterbody does not meet the State standards indicative of a healthy system, it is considered impaired, and actions are required to improve water quality.
Pinellas County has monitored the quality of surface waters (creeks, lakes, bays, and intracoastal waters) since 1991. The City of St. Petersburg monitors its own waters, so none of those are included here.
