EPA Workplan: Demonstration Project on Hydrilla and Hygrophila in the Upper Kissimmee Chain of Lakes

Quality Assurance Project Plan

The quality assurance plan (QAP) will be provided by the University of Florida and SePRO to EPA for approval prior to the collection of any data associated with their respective elements/tasks. Osceola County will not be performing any data collection; therefore, the County will not be submitting a separate QAP. Work (in form of data collection) will not begin until EPA has approved the QAP.
