Setting limits on water usage is topic of meeting Tuesday

Published November 10, 2006
The first steps in determining just how much water can be withdrawn from the aquifer, rivers and springs in the area before significant harm is caused will be the focus of an upcoming special meeting by the Suwannee River Water Management District.

The public meeting will be held from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 14 at the Fort White Community Center to discuss "MFLs," an acronym for minimum flows and levels.

Minimum levels already have been established for the Lower Suwannee River, as well as for Manatee, Fanning and Madison Blue springs. Determing those levels came after a number of public meetings, such as the one planned for Fort White.
