Minimum Flows, Maximum Importance

Published October 7, 2008 - Hernando Today
So when it comes to pumping water to meet west central Florida's burgeoning demand, how much is too much?

The Southwest Florida Water Management District is working to answer that question for dozens of water bodies in its 16-county region, including the Withlacoochee, Weekiwachee and Chassahowitzka rivers

The district's regulatory department and governing board will use the minimum flow levels when deciding on whether to grant a permit for water supply projects or groundwater pumping in the region.
