Last year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency agreed to set specific limits on phosphorus and nitrogen in Florida waters to settle an ongoing lawsuit. It’s the first time the EPA has stepped in and set water quality standards for a state. The proposed regulations are out for public review and comment, and they are already drawing opposition from business interests and others. This week, we’ll look at the proposed rules and how they might help -- or hurt -- our state.

Audio extra descriptions: 

Jose Gonzalez says the nitrogen and phosphorus limits proposed by the EPA would cause 80 percent of the state's water bodies to have nutrient levels that would be considered too high. (2:07)

David Childs and Manley Fuller talk about assertions by opponents of the proposed standards that the limits would reduce nitrogen and phosphorus below natural levels and harm aquatic life in some water bodies. (3:07)

Childs says the state already has a proven method for restoring bodies of water with nutrient problems -- the Total Maximum Daily Load program. (1:46)

David Guest explains how the proposed water-quality standards would break the state into different regions and treat different types of water bodies differently. (2:05)
