SRWMD declares phase I water shortage advisory

Published: November 22, 2006
Lack of rainfall has created a moderate drought throughout the Suwannee River basin in Florida and Georgia, according to the National Weather Service (NWS). Most areas of the District are experiencing low or extremely low groundwater and surfacewater levels due to below-average monthly rainfall. With a cumulative 12.17-inch rainfall deficit, the year ending October 31, 2006 is the eighth driest year since 1931.

New record monthly lows were observed at the Aucilla River near Lamont, the Steinhatchee River near Cross City, and for the second month in a row, the Santa Fe River near Fort White. The end-of-month reading at the Withlacoochee River near Pinetta tied the historic monthly low at that station, after setting a new low last month.
