Welcome from our Executive Director


Welcome! The District is excited to announce the launching of its e-newsletter, RiverFronts. Some of you may remember a District newsletter from the past and we are thrilled to introduce a revamped version of it.

The District has launched many new projects since the beginning of the new year. We have introduced a new website that is user-friendly and easy to navigate, public access for Rock Bluff Springs tract will be open soon, and we are kicking off a three-month initiative to highlight the unique springs within the District.

Along with these projects, we are launching RiverFronts to stay connected with residents and visitors in the area. Our goal and focus with RiverFronts is to provide you with District news, including important dates, recreational opportunities, featured projects and more.

Follow us along with RiverFronts each month to stay informed about the latest news at the District!

Springs Initiative


Have you visited north Florida's historical springs? There are over 300 documented springs within the Suwannee River Basin, so you are sure to find one that is close to you! While you are visiting the springs, remember that they are a window into our aquifer and critical resource for drinking water and wildlife. 

During the next few months, we are highlighting the importance of the springs on our social media pages. To find out how you too can protect our springs, visit our website.

Water Conservation Month


April is Water Conservation Month. Along with year-round efforts to highlight the importance of conserving water, the District challenges residents, visitors and businesses to take action by implementing easy water conservation tips and tricks into their daily routines. 

The District, Bradford, Levy, Taylor and Suwannee county, along with the city of Monticello, have joined the effort by recognizing the importance of water conservation in their area. They have signed a proclamation to declare April as Water Conservation Month and bring awareness to this initiative. Find out if your local government joined the movement on our website.

Do you want to join the movement? Follow us on Facebook as we provide easy strategies on how to conserve water in your home.

Is Your Well "Well"?


Are you a responsible well owner? It is important to properly maintain your well to ensure your drinking water and the Floridan aquifer remains healthy.

If you are unsure about what it takes to be a responsible well owner, watch our staff provide some pointers on our Well Wellness playlist on YouTube. The playlist provides instruction on how to check your well, proper well abandonment and how to be a responsible well owner.
