ERD History, Description, and Resources 4.1.1 General Qualifications Environmental Research & Design, Inc. (ERD) was created as a water quality research and engineering firm in 1986 in Orlando, Florida. ‘The firm was founded by its president, Harvey H. Harper, Ph.D., P.E., formerly an Assistant Professor of Environmental Engineering at the University of Central Florida. ERD presently maintains a staff of 12 engineers, scientists, chemists and support personnel. ERD has successfully completed lake restoration, stormwater treatment, BMP evaluation, source tracking, and water quality projects for public entities throughout the states of Florida, Washington and Indiana. Some of our present clients include Hillsborough County, Pinellas County, Orange County, Martin County, Seminole County, Brevard County, Walton County, City of Orlando, City of Winter Park, the Southwest Florida Water Management Distric:, the South Florida Water Management District, the Northwest Florida Water Management District, the St. Johns River Water Management District, and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. ERD's entire staff ‘s devoted exclusively to water quality, lake restoration, and stormwater treatment retrofit projects all day, every day, and due to our specialization in water quality, ERD has the largest full-ime water quality staff of any firm in the southeast United States. Personnel currently at ERD have conducted over 45 sponsored research projects, published over 125 reports and articles, and conducted more than 150 presentations related to lake management and restoration and general water quality issues. This information spans over 34 years from the infancy of stormwater treatment to today's advanced technologies. Almost all ERD projects involve field sampling, measurement and quantification of pollutant loads, and evaluation and implementation of water quality restoration elements. ERD has extensive experience in each of the potential project elements required for the Marco Island project. Water quality services conducted by ERD typically include field instrumentation, development of hydrologic and nutrient budgets, land use characterization, watershed modeling, loading quantification, nutrient evaluation and analysis, water and sediment sampling, nutrient source tracking, bathymetric mapping, GIS services, water quality modeling, data analysis, development of management plans, nutrient abatement evaluations, report generation, and public presentations. ERD also routinely conducts performance efficiency evaluations for constructed BMPs or to evaluate improvements to existing BMPs. This experience provides ERD with a unique understanding of pollutant transport and removal mechanisms in a wide variety of systems. ERD conducts projects in the areas of lake restoration, nutrient and hydrologic budgets, stormwater management, sediment-water column interactions, nutrient assimilation, algal productivity, and general water quality issues. Because of this specialization, ERD has a minimum of 2-3 lake restoration projects and 5-10 water quality evaluation projects in progress at all times. Over the past 15 years, ERD has been involved in more than 50 lake restoration and water quality evaluations. All but two of these projects have been performed on lake or river systems within the State of Florida which has provided ERD with a unique understanding of physical, chemical and biological processes in Florida surface water systems. In addition to the PROPOSALS\MARCO ISLAND RFP Iaatt SErTION && PAGE 1 projects listed above, ERD has also performed more than 50 additional water quality-related Projects involving estimation of pollutant loadings to surface waterbodies based on field measurements, water quality modeling, and evaluation of water column-sediment interactions. Many of the projects conducted by ERD involve evaluating ambient water quality characteristics of surface waters and performance efficiency of constructed BMPs. Typical services include field instrumentation, sampiing, development of hydrologic and nutrient budgets, mapping and GIS services, data analysis, on-going maintenance and calibration of field instrumentation, hydrologic and water quality modeling, report preparation, and public presentations. The areas of expertise listed above for ERD cover all foreseeable services which may be required for this project. 4.1.2 Resources ‘The specialization of ERD in water quality has allowed us to develop very complete resources in this area. ERD maintains a complete inventory of state-of-the-art field sampling and monitoring equipment sufficient to successfully complete any water quality research project. ERD owns more than 25 automatic samplers with integral flow meters for collection of stormwater runoff and basefiow; seepage meters for monitoring of the quantity and quality of groundwater inflow to surface waters; equipment for collection of surface water, equipment for installation of groundwater monitoring wells and collection of groundwater samples; equipment for recording rainfall, evaporation, water level and flow rate; equipment for collection of grab and core samples from lake bottom sediments; sample collection and research boats; and multiple 4-wheel drive vehicles. This extensive inventory of equipment allows us to complete virtually any water quality project with in-house resources. ERD has also investigated and developed innovative methods for estimation of groundwater flux in surface water systems. Based upon the research performed by ERD, many lake managers in Florida now recognize that groundwater inflow into aquatic systems can represent a significant pollutant and hydrologic loading to the lake system that may alter selection of final water quality improvement options. To assist in quantification of influx from groundwater seepage, ERD has developed and refined a monitoring system for estimation of the quantity and quality of groundwater influx using seepage meters. Seepage meters have been used by ERD in virtually all lake restoration and diagnostic evaluation projects over the past five years. Seepage meters are now commonly specified by governmental agencies when soliciting services for pollutant loading evaluation studies. ‘Working primarily on water quality projects over the past 30 years has enabled ERD to develop an extensive library and database related to water quality issues. ERD continuously provides research and summary papers and reports free-of-charge to water resource professionals in the State of Florida. During 2007, ERD was selected by FDEP to develop the technical framework for the proposed Statewide Stormwater Rule. The resulting analysis has substantially enhanced the state of knowledge for pollutant load estimation and BMP efficiency estimation in Florida. ERD also developed a runoff emc database for Florida which includes summaries of previous runoff characterization studies and emc values for 15 different land use categories and 10 different runoff constituents. The information contained in this database is now used for TMDL studies and BMAP projects throughout the State. During 2008, ERD completed a 14-month study of natural area runoff characteristics which included 31 sites across the State, and more than 325 composite runoff samples were collected. This database is now used to characterize runoff loadings from natural areas.

Typical projects conducted by ERD fall into one of four categories, including water qualty monitoring and assessment, lake management projects, stormwater BMP Performance evaluations, including instrumentation and monitoring, and development of water quality management plans. Lake and surface water management services typically incluce field instrumentation, development of hydrologic and nutrient budgets, land use characterization and loading quantification, nutrient evaluation and analysis, sampling, bathymetric mapping, GIS services, water quality modeling, data analysis, development of management plans, nutrient abatement evaluations, report generation, and public presentations. BMP evaluations are conducted to evaluate the performance efficiency of constructed BMPs or to evaluate improvements to existing BMPs. 5.2 Water Quality Monitoring Experience Since all projects performed by ERD involve lakes, rivers, estuaries, or stormwater treatment systems, ERD routinely conducts monitoring of surface water and sediment quality in lakes or rivers, performing laboratory analyses on surface water and sediment samples, and previding interpretive results to the client. For some projects, the monitoring is performed as part of a lake restoration program or stormwater treatment project to identify significant nutrient sources and develop water quality management plans. For other clients, we perform routine surface water or sediment monitoring to satisfy permit conditions or simply to maintain a database of water quality conditions and trends. A partial listing of the surface waters monitored by ERD in the ast few years is given in Table 2. Virtually all of these waterbodies were monitored on multiple ‘occasions, with most monitored over at least one annual cycle. Most monitoring programs included collection of vertical field profiles and collection of surface water samples for analysis in the ERD Laboratory. 5.3 Hydrologic Instrumentation Development of an accurate hydrologic budget is one of the most important aspects of evaluating potential management options for any given waterbody. Nutrient inputs and losses are driven largely by hydrologic forces, and a thorough understanding of the hydrology of any evaluated system is essential. ERD has extensive experience in hydrologic evaluations, both as independent stucies and as part of surface water nutrient budgets and management plans. ERD maintains a complete state-of-the-art inventory of hydrologic monitoring equipment, including automatic samplers, velocity meters, discharge measurement devices, rain gauges, bulk precipitation collectors, evaporimeters, staff gauges, water level recorders, and associated equipment. This extensive experience has enabled ERD to evaluate the most appropriate hydrologic monitoring strategy for any given situation.

This evaluation begins with the collection of all available physical, chemical and biological data for the waterbody of interest. Once all of the available data have been collected, it is entered into a water quality database, ERD normally uses Excel, SigmaPlot, or the widely recognized and well-respected Statistical Analysis System (SAS) unless another type of software is requested by the client. Often, data sets for individual variables require transformations to obtain a normally distributed probability function. A normally distributed data set is necessary before simple univariate statistics, such as means or standard deviations, can be performed. It is also useful to plot individual parameters of concem with respect to time to look for ennual or seasonal trends or periods of highly differing values. ERD has conducted both long term and seasonal trend analyses on more than 100 waterbodies in Florida. 5.5 ERD Research Laboratory ERD maintains its own in-house research-grade water quality laboratory which is used solely for our own project efforts. In addition to research-grade equipment for water quality analyses, facilities are also provided for sediment nutrient analysis, algal bioassays, short- and long-term toxicity experiments, setting columns, scale model filtration systems with underdrains, soil/sediment grain size analysis, and facilities for jar test and coagulation experiments, including measurement of zeta potential. ERD has also designed and constructed a continuously stirred environmental chamber for incubation of sediments and slurries under differing pH levels and oxidation states. Al laboratory and field activities conducted by ERD are certified by NELAC (#£1031026) as _a Basic Environmental Laboratory (general parameters, nutrients, and microbiological Parameters) and for Heavy Metals. Quality control is very important at ERD for both laboratory and field operations. Quality control is continuously monitored on all work efforts and is frequently reviewed by the Quality Assurance Officer and the Project Director. Quality assurance in field operations is provided through pre-installation testing, cleaning and calibration procedures, frequent maintenance and calibration of equipment after entering the field, and @ continuous evaluation of the suitability and accuracy of the field equipment for the desired task. Since ERD performs water quality testing only for projects related to surface water, groundwater, and sediments, laboratory procedures have been developed to optimize measurements within the range of values normally found in these water sources. This means that ERD can provide consistently lower detection limits for significant parameters such as nutrients than can be provided by other laboratories which measure a wide range of parameters from industrial wastes to drinking water. As an example, the minimum detection limits for ortho- Phosphorus and total phosphorus in the ERD laboratory are 0.001 mg/l and 0.003 mg/l, respectively. Most other laboratories list detection limits of 0.005 mg/l and 0.050 mg/l for these parameters. Since typical concentrations of ortho-phosphorus and total phosphorus in surface water systems are less than 0.005 mg/l and 0.050 mg/l, respectively, the reported data from these laboratories is presented as <0.005 mg/l and <0.050 mg/l which is essentially useless data. Many laboratories can provide reduced detection limits, but at a substantially higher price. Since the lower detection limits generated by ERD are standard values, no additional charges are involved. ERD also conducts measurements of chlorophyll-a using the extremely accurate fluorometric technique which is based on actual chlorophyll-a standards instead of the spectrophotometric method, which is difficult to perform and replicate, does not utilize standards, and is valid only in freshwater systems. 5.6 Examples of Water Quality Management Projects ‘A summary of significant water quality management and source identification projects conducted by ERD over the past few years is given in the following sections. Information is provided for the Client, Project Management contact, Project Name, Description of Services, Fees, Dates of Services, and Relevant Work Efforts. A code is provided for relevant work efforts and a key for the codes is given at the end of each table. 5.6.1 Water Quality Management Projects ERD has conducted more than 100 water quality management projects which included field monitoring to identify and quantify nutrient loadings to water bodies and develop water quality management options and plans. Virtually all of these projects include hydrologic monitoring to assist in developing hydrologic budgets and surface water or stormwater monitoring to quantify nutrient loadings. After identifying the nutrient loadings and sources, ERD develops a site-specific management plan for each waterbody based on the types, concentrations, and composition of the nutrient inputs. ERD has installed stormwater collection and flow monitoring instrumentation at more than 200 individual monitoring sites and has collected thousands of stormwater runoff, tributary, and canal samples within the State of Florida. This level of expertise is unmatched by other firms within the State of Florida. ERD can quickly conduct virtually any type of hydrologic or water quality investigation using existing in-house resources, including laboratory services. ERD has an unmatched record of successful water quality projects throughout the State. Examples of typical surface water and lake management projects conducted by ERD are given in Table 3.

Each of these projects involved design of the monitoring program, selection and installation of hydrologic and automated monitoring equipment, equipment calibration and maintenance, and data retrieval and management. ERD has developed many innovative monitoring designs and instrumentation to address unusual monitoring conditions. Field monitoring has been conducted in pipes, weirs, swales, channels, canals, and water control structures. Mary of the existing stormwater design criteria and removal efficiency calculations used by the Water Management Districts are based on work conducted by ERD. ERD has conducted more than 30 detailed research projects, involving both field and laboratory activities, to evaluate the performance efficiencies of stormwater BMPs and STAs and to characterize runoff discharging from various land use categories. ERD maintains an extensive selection of research-grade field and laboratory equipment and can easily implement monitoring activities for virtually any outfall type and configuration. ERD has provided stormwater collection instrumentation at more than 200 individual monitoring sites and has collected thousands of stormwater runoff, tributary, and canal samples within the State of Florida. Much of the existing runoff emc database within the State of Florida is based upon research conducted by ERD. ERD hhas been routinely selected by FDEP for BMP evaluations and field monitoring activities, often through a Sole Source contract. ERD has conducted BMP efficiency monitoring in the field for virtually every type of stormwater management practice used within the State of Florida to date. This experience provides ERD with an unmatched understanding of significant removal processes within each type of BMP which can assist in targeting and maximizing BMP selection for specific pollutant removals. A summary of significant stormwater and BMP water quality monitoring projects conducted by ERD over the past few years is given in Table 4.

Hyarooge mnwumenaton 5.6.3 Nutrient Source Tracking Virtually every project conducted by ERD involves design of a monitoring program to identify and quantify sources of nutrients into surface waters. However, in some cases, the origin of the Nutrients is of concem to trace specific sources in the watershed. ERD has conducted more than 10 source tracking projects to identify both surface water and groundwater impacts from wastewater reuse irrigaticn, golf course fertilization, residential fertilization, septic tanks, landfill leachate, agricultural activities, and changes in nutrient loadings before and after implementation of fertilizer ordinances. ERD was one of the first to recognize the potential nutrient impacts from reuse irrigation, and ERD personnel gave many presentations to scientific groups and organizations regarding this issue. Other projects have been conducted using tracers such as sucralose, caffeine, and boron. A partial summary of nutrient source tracking Projects conducted by ERD is given in Table 5. Using source tracking techniques, ERD has been able to identify sources of nitrate in groundwater and surface water associated with golf courses which use reuse irrigation at multiple sites in Pinellas County and Orange County. Stable isotopes have been used by ERD to identify sources of groundwater influx to lakes and to identify sources of nutrient contamination in urban drainage systems. ERD has also used sucralose as an indicator of the source of sewage contamination in the Econ River.

Interactions between the sediments and the water column can be particularly significant in shallow lake systems. ERD has performed numerous projects to evaluate the impacts of sediments on water quality including projects in Lake Maggiore in St. Petersburg, FL, where in-lake isolation limno-coral chambers were utilized to identify changes in water quality characteristics resulting from wave action within the lake and to determine the effect of dredging on lake water quality; in the Winter Haven Chain-of-Lakes, where ERD performed another study utilizing isolation limno-coral chambers to evaluate the impacts of sediment nutrient exchange and potential sediment remediation projects (such as sediment removal or alum sediment inactivation) on algal productivity; and in East Lake, located in Tampa, FL, where ERD evaluated the impacts of sediment resuspension and recycling on water quality within the lake as a component of the nutrient budget for the lake. ERD has conducted actual field measurements of sediment-nutrient exchange in more than 50 lakes in Florida. Prior to the work conducted by ERD jin this area, nutient loadings from internal recycling were ignored in virtually all lake nutrient budgets and TMDL allocations, which results in an increased emphasis on runoff generated inputs and higher load reduction allocations to local governments. After numerous presentations on this issue by ERD at ic symposia, FDEP has now begun to include internal recycling estimates in current TMDL documents. 5.6.5 Groundwater Influx ERD has also investigated and developed innovative [ 7" methods for estimation of groundwater flux in surface water systems using seepage meters designed by ERD. Based upon the research performed by ERD, many lake managers in Florida now recognize that groundwater inflow into lake systems can represent a significant pollutant and hydrologic loading to the lake system that may alter selection of final water quality improvement options. Prior to the extensive work conducted by ERD in this area, groundwater nutrient loadings were only included by FDEP in TMDL allocations if septic tanks were located along the lake perimeter. The work conducted by ERD has demonstrated that groundwater seepage is a significant hydrologic and nutrient loading to all lakes, not just lakes with septic tanks along the shoreline. Pace 20 5.7 Project Management And Quality Control Successful implementation of Water Quality Projects will require preparation and continued moritoring of a thorough Project Management Plan. The Project Management Plan will include the following key elements: City / ERD Coordination ERD / Internal Coordination Project Cost Control Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) Program - Field Monitoring and Laboratory Analyses Sens Project management for ERD projects is greatly simplified since sub-consultants are not required for any of the proposed activities with the exception of specialized lab analyses. Since all management is internal, ERD can quickly resolve any potential issues which may arise without e-mails or phone calls. The lack of subconsultants also el additional layer of management fees which results in savings to the Client. 5.7.1 City ERD Coordination The City/ERD interface for this project will begin prior to the kick-off meeting. ERD will have already coordinated the final Project Work Plan, a project schedule, and an agreed upon budget for all project services. At the start-up meeting, we will finalize the contacts for the City and ERD, and review the Project Work Plan, project schedule, and the budget for the project. The City/ERD interface will continue throughout the project with periodic e-mails between project managers. Detailed monthly progress reports will be provided to the City. ERD will meet with the City at all key Points, as outlined in the Scope of Services. 5.7.2 ERD Internal Coordination ‘Throughout the project, ERD's Project Director, Dr. Harvey H. Harper, P.E., will be responsible for coordinating the activities of ERD personnel. Immediately upon contract execution between the City and ERD, Dr. Harper will promptly schedule an internal start-up meeting to discuss the services to be provided, equipment and staffing needs, and the project schedule. Following the start-up meeting, Dr. Harper will also conduct monthly internal meetings to discuss previous work Products, upcoming work products, and to resolve any questions or concems which have developed. 5.7.3 Project Cost Control In conjunction with developing the proposed Work Plan, ERD will prepare a detailed breakdown of all labor, materials, and expenses. ERD will monitor costs carefully and will prepare monthly Progress reports to the District summarizing all expenditures related to labor, materials, or expenses. These monthly progress reports and associated invoices will be submtted to the District for review and payment. ERD commits to not exceeding the agreed upon budget unless the Scope of Services are changed or modified. Once accepting a project, ERD has never requested a change order from any client unless a significant change in scope was ‘specifically requested by the client. If any changes in Scope are requested, ERD will prepare a revised project cost summary and submit to the City's Project Manager for approval. No additional work will be completed unless approved by the City's Project Manager. PROPOSALS {MARCO ISLAND RFP 19.089 SECTION 48 PAGE SECTION 6 Project Understanding and Approach 6.1 General Philosophy Virtually all projects conducted by ERD involve identification and quantification of nutrient sources and development of water quality management plans. Over the years ERD has developed a relatively standard strategy for these projects. Many consultants assume that water quality issues are created primarily by stormwater runoff and focus narrowly on stormwater management. However, to adequately assess nutrient sources to waterbodies it must be understood that nutrients originate from a variety of sources, and each potential source must be evaluated and quantified to identify significant sources and achieve a successful water quality Project. This comprehensive approach to identifying nutrient sources has allowed ERD to achieve an un-matched level of success in improving water quality. Nutrient loadings to waterbodies originate from a variety of sources. A schematic diagram of Potential nutrient sources to waterbodies is given in the figure below. In addition to runoff, waterbodies are also impacted by loadings from baseflow, groundwater seepage, bulk Precipitation, internal recycling, and in some cases, waterfowl can be a significant nutrient source. Baseflow reflects drawdown of ponds and groundwater between storm events and is often ignored. Groundwater seepage carries loadings from watershed sources such as septic tanks, fertilizer applications, landuse activities, and reuse irrigation. Bulk precipitation is also ‘commonly ignored, but this source can contribute large nutrient loadings, particularly for nitrogen. Intemal recycling is another source which is almost always ignored, but in eutrophic waterbodies, this source often exceeds runoff loadings by a large margin. To achieve a successful water quality project, each of these sources must be quantified and compared. Typical Waterbody Nutrient Budget Components Runoff! Basefiow Precipitation \ | Outflow J 7 \ Groundwater \ Seepage Deep Recharge PROPOSALS\MARCO ISLAND RFP 19.013 SECTION 4 The approach proposed by ERD is to quantify each of the identified nutrient sources and produce a ranking of nutrient loadings and develop mitigation strategies for each source. ERD Proposes to collect sufficient field and laboratory data, using a combination of existing and new data, to partion and quantify nutrient inputs. To assist in better understanding the issues facing the City ERD has downloaded available water quality data for the Marco Island area from 2015 to the present and reviewed current and historical aerial photography to identify changes in landuse and visual water quality in waterbodies. To demonstrate our approach, understanding, and methods of providing the requested services to the City, ERD has provided a typical Scope of Services for a water quality evaluation and management project. This Scope of Services outlines each of the specific work efforts to be conducted by ERD, including specific ERD personnel involved. Since more data will become available to the selected consultant, the tasks listed below and number of proposed monitoring sites may change based on discussions with the City, but this proposed Scope of Services should be viewed as a demonstration of understanding of identifying, monitoring, and quantifying nutrient sources in waterbodies. 6.2_Proposed Scope of Services 1. Prolect Kick-off Meeting: ERD personnel will attend a project kick-off meeting with the City Project Manager to review the overall project objectives, scope of services, primary contacts for each organization, project schedule, meeting schedule, coordination and access issues, and to request specific information from the Client. A site visit will also be conducted to review the general area and select potential monitoring sites. (ERD Personnel Involved: Dr. Harvey H. Harper, P.E.) 2. Collect/Review Available Information: All existing information in the possession of the City concerning the waterbodies and contributing watersheds will be provided to ERD for review, including previous studies, historical and current water quality data, and drainage basin boundaries for each watershed to be evaluated; and applicable hydrolagic/stream gauging data, if available. ERD will review all provided and collected information, and applicable information will be utilized for purposes of this project and summarized in the Final Report. (ERD Personnel Involved: Dr. Harvey H. Harper, P.E.; Chip Harper; David Baker, P.E.) 3. Historical i ‘sis: All available historical and current water quality data for the Marco Island area will be collected by ERD. ERD will enter the historical water quality into a statistical database and perform trend analyses and ‘ANOVA comparisons to examine historical trends in water quality. The resulting data will be presented in both tabular and graphical formats. The data will be used to identify “hot spots" and potential loading sources. (ERD Personnel Involved: Chip Harper; Dr Harvey H. Harper, PE.) 4. Routine Surface Water Quality Monitoring: Surface water quality monitoring will be performed by ERD at 12 monitoring sites on a monthly basis and used to establish existing water quality characteristics within each waterbody, examine seasonal variability, and evaluate spatial variability. Water quality monitoring will be performed for a period of 6 months, depending on available budget and schedule, and will include both wet and dry season conditions. During each monitoring event, field measurements of PH, temperature, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, and ORP will be performed at the water surface, and at 0.5 m intervals to the bottom at each monitoring site. A measurement of Secchi disk depth will also be performed. A water sample will be MARCO ISLAND RF? 19-035 SECTIONS PAGE 33 collected at each site, at a depth equal to 50% of the Secchi disk depth and analyzed for the parameters listed below. Microbiological parameters are not included on this list since there is no indication that bacteria have been a problem, but these can be added if desired by the City.

The monitoring data will be used to establish ambient water quality characteristics and assist in evaluating potential water quality trends. (ERD Personnel Involved: Dr. Harvey H. Harper, P.E.; Chip Harper; David Baker, P.E.) 5. Evaluation of Hydrologic Inputs: a, Waterbody Inflows: Field measurements of significant inflows will be performed during the 6-month monitoring program either manually on a periodic basis using the velocity/cross-sectional area method based on USGS protocol or continuously using an installed flow monitor. (ERD Personnel Involved: Chip Harper; Harry Sesnauth; Dr. Harvey H. Harper, P.E.) b. Direct Precipitation: Direct precipitation during the monitoring period will be monitored by ERD using a recording rain gauge, with a resolution of 0.01 inches, which will be installed near the center of the drainage basin. This rain gauge will provide a continuous record of all precipitation inputs to the lake during the study Period. (ERD Personnel Involved: Chip Harper; Harry Seenauth; Dr. Harvey H. Hamper, PE.) ¢. Water Levels: If appropriate for the study, ERD will install digital water level recorders in significant waterbodies to document changes in water surface elevations to assist in developing hydrologic budgets. ERD personnel will retrieve information from the level recorders approximately once every two weeks. (ERD Personnel Involved: Chip Harper, Harry Seenauth; Dr. Hervey H. Harper, P.E.) 6. Evaluation of Nutrient Inputs: a. Bulk Precipitation: Continuous measurements of bulk precipitation will be conducted by ERD at a single location near the center of the drainage basin Bulk precipitation will be collected in a funneltype device connected to a refrigerated polyethylene sample bottle. Bulk precipitation samples will be retrieved by ERD on a weekly basis during the monitoring program and analyzed for the following constituents: (1) pH (8) Total Nitrogen PROPOSALS\MARCO ISLAND REP 19.018 SUCTION 48 PAGE 26 (2) Specific Conductivity (7) Ortho-phosphorus (3) Alkalinity (8) Total Phosphorus (4) Ammonia Nitrogen (9) Total Suspended Solids (5) NOeN (ERD Personnel Involved: Chip Harper; Harry Seenauth; Dr. Harvey H. Harper, PE: Cassie Revell) b. Shallow Groundwater Seepage: Groundwater seepage meters will be installed at 10 locations. The locations will be selected based on a review of bathymetric maps, adjacent landuse, septic tank areas, and application of reclaimed reuse irrigation. Seepage meters will also be placed in background areas for comparison. Seepage meters allow direct measurement of the quantity and quality of groundwater inflows to waterbodies and are far superior to the use of monitoring wells which only provide information on the water quality at the site of measurement, which can change substantially during migration through bottom sediments, and do not provide direct evaluation of inflow rates. ‘The quantity of seepage influx will be measured, and samples will be collected and analyzed once every month during the 6-month field monitoring program. The collected groundwater seepage samples will be returned to the ERD Laboratory and analyzed for the following parameters: (1) pH (6) Total Nitrogen (2) Specific Conductivity (7) Total Phosphorus (3) Alkalinity (8) Color (4) Ammonia (9) Stable Isotopes (6) Nox Locations of each seepage meter will be indicated by GPS coordinates and a submerged floating buoy. Each of the collected seepage samples will be field filtered prior to collection of samples for laboratory analyses. The proposed stable isotopes will be used to identify potential sources of NOx in the seepage. (ERD Personnel Involved: Chip Harper; Harry Seenauth; Dr. Harvey H. Harper, P.E.: Cassie Revell) ¢. Stormwater_Runoff The character of stormwater runoff discharging from various land use categories will be evaluated by performing monitoring at significant outfalls within the drainage basin. Specific locations and land use types to be included in the monitoring program will be selected jointly by ERD and the City, but for purposes of this submittal, a total of 4 monitoring sites is proposed. ERD will install stormwater autosamplers with integral flowmeters at each site inside an insulated equipment shelter. Runoff samples will be collected as a flow-weighted composite of runoff generated during the entire storm event, or in the case of baseflow, as a weekly composite, with a target goal of 8 samples collected per site. Each of the collected flow-weighted composite ‘stormwater samples will be returned to the ERD Laboratory and analyzed for the parameters listed below. Stable isotopes will be measured on the collected ‘samples and used to identify sources such as fertilizer and reuse. (ERD Personnel Involved: Chip Harper, Harry Seenauth; Dr. Harvey H. Harper.

Sediment core samples will be collected within the lake using a 2-inch diameter split-spoon type core device. Visual characteristics of each sediment core sample will be recorded, and the 0-10 cm layer will be extracted and retumed to the ERD Laboratory for chemical analysis. Each of the sediment core samples will be analyzed for the following parameters: a. Total Phosphorus d. Moisture Content b. Total Nitrogen e. Sediment Density ¢. Organic Nitrogen Each of the core samples will also be analyzed using the Chang and Jackson phosphorus speciation technique which divides sediment phosphorus associations into the following categories: a. Saloid-Bound Phosphorus b. __Iron-Bound Phosphorus (soluble + easily exchangeable) ¢._-—Aluminum-Bound Phosphorus The results of the sediment analyses and speciation procedures will be used to identify general sediment characteristics and to assist in estimating the potential for internal recycling of nutrients from the sediments into the overlying water column in each waterbody. Isopleth maps will be prepared for each evaluated sediment parameter and waterbody. (ERD Personnel Involved: Chip Harper; Harty Seenauth; Dr. Harvey H. Harper, P.E.; Cassie Revell) ion of Internal Nutri ing: Direct measurements of internal recycling of nitrogen and phosphorus under aerobic and anaerobic conditions will be performed using sediment release rate experiments on sediment core samples collected within the waterbodies. Large diameter (10 cm) sediment core samples will be collected from a variety of water depths and sediment characteristics and returned to the ERD Laboratory Specific locations for collection of the large diameter core samples will be based upon the results of the sediment core samples collected under Task 7 Following collection, the large diameter core samples will be incubated under both aerobic and anaerobic conditions. Release of nitrogen phosphorus will be measured in each core sample over time. The release rate information will be combined with historical dissolved oxygen field measurements, as well as the general sediment characterization information, to estimate nutrient recycling based on the percentage of aerobic and anaerobic zones. (ERD Personnel Involved: Chip Harper, Harry Seenauth; Dr Harvey H. Harper, P.E.; Cassie Revell) Reuse Irrigation Impacts: Impacts from reuse irrigation will be evaluated by collection and analysis of reuse water and information on application areas and rates. ERD will collect samples of reuse water during each site visit, and the samples will be analyzed for the parameters outlined under Stormwater Runoff. The relative contribution of reuse PROPOSALS MARCO ISLAND RFP 19405.

(ERD Personnel Involved: David Baker, P.E.; Or Harvey H. Harper, PE) Identify Nutrient Sources: At the conclusion of the field monitoring efforts, ERD will develop an annual hydrologic budget for the lake. The hydrologic budget will include stormwater inflows, groundwater seepage, deep groundwater losses, direct precipitation, interconnected lake flow, and evaporation. (ERD Personnel Involved: David Baker, P-E., Or. Harvey H. Harper, P.E.; Chip Harper) Develop Action Plan: Based upon the information obtained during the review of existing information and the data obtained during the field monitoring program, ERD will develop an Action Plan which outlines efforts to be undertaken to reduce loadings to waterbodies and improve water quality. This Plan will include both structural and non-structural techniques, as appropriate, to improve water quality. Conceptual designs, including construction, annual operation and maintenance costs, and pollutant removal costs and benefits, will be calculated for each evaluated management option. (ERD Personnel Involved: Dr. Harvey H. Harper, P.E.; David Baker, P.E.; Chip Harper; Sharon Darling) Prepare Draft Final Report: At the conclusion of the tasks outlined above, ERD will Prepare a Draft Final Report which describes all of the field and laboratory work efforts Performed, summarizes the analyses and conclusions of the study, and outlines the recommended management plan. (ERD Personnel Involved: Dr. Harvey H.
