Suwannee River rises, overflows banks

Published 3/12/08
In less than a month, the Suwannee River has risen several feet in some places and much higher in others.

One of the springs near Troy Springs State Park is completely under water, including the half-mile creek that runs from it to the Suwannee River.

The recent rains make it seem that we are out of the drought that has plagued the area for a year or more.

That’s not quite the case. The rain is having some effect, however.

“Early indications are seeing an increase in ground water levels,” according to Megan Wetherington of the Suwannee River Water Management District.
