Alachua County not represented on water districts' “stakeholder” group

Published May 10, 2012 The Gainesville Sun
The historic lows of rivers, lakes and springs in the two districts and public concerns that groundwater pumping in Northeast Florida was affecting water bodies and groundwater levels in the more rural Suwannee district led the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the two water management districts to formalize an agreement in September to work more closely on water issues.

Under their North Florida Regional Water Supply Partnership, the districts will work cooperatively in planning and permitting decisions, use shared science and processes in setting minimum flows and levels — or mfls — for water bodies and coordinate efforts on restoring water bodies that do not meet those mfls.
