The basin is located within the larger Charlotte Harbor Watershed, which also includes the Peace River and Myakka River Basins. Charlotte Harbor is the second-largest estuary in Florida and the largest, deepest and most diverse of the five Charlotte Harbor Aquatic Preserves, encompassing the Gasparilla Sound-Charlotte Harbor Aquatic Preserve.

Water Quality Snapshot

The Water Quality Snapshot compares the most current water quality data to applicable water quality standards for Chlorophyll a, Phosphorus, Nitrogen, Bacteria, and Dissolved Oxygen to provide a snapshot of how a waterbody is doing. Water quality standards are outlined in Florida Administrative Code 62-302 for fresh/marine waterbodies of different types and uses. A Water Body Identification number (WBID) is an assessment unit that is intended to represent Florida’s waterbodies at the watershed or sub-watershed scale. The assessment units are drainage basins, lakes, lake drainage areas, springs, rivers and streams, segments of rivers and streams, coastal, bay and estuarine waters in Florida.
