Blue Cypress Lake Water Quality Study <br />Exhibit A <br />Scope of Work <br />Objective <br />The objective is to gather, validate, and assess the water quality data associated with Blue Cypress Lake <br />and its watershed, including the permitted use of land application of biosolids, to determine if <br />anthropogenic influences are a significant causative factor in water quality trends. <br />Related Project <br />As part of a Purchase Order the Consultant performed the initial elements of this project, including data <br />collection, one interagency coordination meeting, and trend analysis. This Scope of Work is a <br />continuation of those efforts to reach a conclusion on the project objective. <br />Task 1: Kickoff Meeting and Site Visit <br />The Consultant will attend a kickoff meeting with the County and conduct a site visit in the watershed. <br />The kickoff meeting will be used to confirm project goals, establish lines of communication, and discuss <br />past efforts. <br />Deliverable: Meetine agenda and minutes. <br />Task 2: Interagency Coordination <br />The Consultant will attend up to three interagency coordination meetings. One purpose of the meetings <br />will be to discuss past and proposed efforts to avoid duplication and to facilitate information sharing. <br />We are proposing these to be online meetings due to the wide geographic extent of the applicable <br />agencies. Coordination meetings will include FDEP, SJRWMD, FDACS, FWC, and others as needed to <br />discuss data sources, guidance, regulatory oversight, and jurisdictional responsibilities. <br />Deliverable: Meeting agendas, presentation material, and minutes. <br />Task 3: WBID Assessment <br />Using the same statistical protocols used by FDEP, the Consultant will assess each of the WBIDs <br />(Attachment A) against the applicable water quality criteria. The Blue Cypress Lake and the surrounding <br />WBIDs are part of the Upper St. Johns Group 3 Basin, which was last assessed in 2016 with data collected <br />through July, 2015. The next assessment will likely occur in either 2019 or 2020, and it is important to be <br />able to anticipate any change in impairment status. This task is not directly related to determination of <br />anthropogenic sources but speaks to assimilative capacity, causation of impairment, and potential for <br />involvement of the Florida Watershed Restoration Act. <br />Deliverable: Technical memorandum summarizing the WBID assessments. <br />2 <br />
