GIS Users,

The following layer has been newly inserted in the GIS library and is published in DataCatalog/DataMiner:

DataCatalog/DataMiner Name - Mandatory Phosphate Mine Boundaries 2007

The Mandatory Phosphate Mine Boundaries layer contains the Conceptual boundaries of all Active and Inactive Mandatory Phosphate Mines within Florida by the year 2007. 'Mandatory Phosphate Mines' does not indicate that the area is required to be mined for phosphate; 'Mandatory' refers to the regulatory status of the land. Land mined for phosphate since July 1, 1975 is 'Mandatory,' and is required by Florida law to be reclaimed (contoured and re-vegetated). Land mined prior to July 1, 1975 was not required to be reclaimed. This layer provides the mine boundary for mines that are subject to the regulatory requirements of Chapter 378, Part III, F.S. and/or Chapter 373, Part IV. F.S. and Chapter 62C-16, F.A.C. Mandatory phosphate mining occurs primarily in the Central Florida Phosphate Mining District in Polk, Hillsborough, Manatee, and Hardee counties and one mine in North Florida in Hamilton County. This layer was designed to provide the Bureau of Mining and Minerals Regulation with a graphical representation of the Mandatory Phosphate boundaries for planning and management purposes. Because this data is a work in progress, it may contain errors such as missing features, outdated features, overlapping features, erroneous status of features, variations in accuracy, or attribute errors. This layer was created and maintained by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Bureau of Mining and Minerals Regulation.

This layer is available in the "Business and Economics" category in DataCatalog and is under the "WRM" tab in DataMiner.

*Note the previous Mandatory Phosphate Mine Boundaries now has the year "2005" appended in DataMiner*

The following layers have been updated in ArcSDE, DataCatalog and DataMiner:

DataCatalog/DataMiner Name: TMDL Basin Groups

DataCatalog/DataMiner Name: Impaired Waters Rule (IWR) Stations

DataCatalog/DataMiner Name: TMDL Planning Units

DataCatalog/DataMiner Name: Waterbody IDs (WBIDs)

These four layers can be accessed under the "Environmental Monitoring and Modeling" and "Water Resources (Inland)" categories in Data Catalog and are under the "WRM" tab in DataMiner.
