The District is scheduled to present a workshop at the Governing Board meeting on Dec. 10 regarding the re-evaluation of the Lower Santa Fe Ichetucknee (LSFI) minimum flow and minimum water levels (MFL).
A MFL is required by Florida law to ensure adequate protection is provided to our water bodies, including rivers, springs and lakes. These levels set minimum requirements for water levels on specific water bodies that sustain the resources and habitat, including recreation, wildlife, fish passage, vegetation, wetland health and more.
The MFL technical document is set to be released for peer review and available to the public in early December. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection will notice the public of meetings or workshops associated with the MFL.
