Setting minimum water levels, restricting development part of program now under way

Published 11/22/06
Called Minimum Flows and Levels (MFLs), the program will set a limit on how much water can be withdrawn from the from the aquifer. This amount will be determined with a model that shows how much water area rivers and springs must retain so that significant harm is not caused.

The water district is required to set a MFL for all first magnitude springs and all second magnitude springs that are not on private property. This includes the Ichetucknee group of springs, Hornsby Spring, Poe Springs, Devil's Ear Spring, Columbia Spring, Rum Island and others.
