In accordance with Section 373.536, Florida Statutes, the
Suwannee River Water Management District (SRWMD) has completed its Five-Year
Water Resource Development Work Program (Work Program) for Fiscal Year 2019.
The Work Program describes the SRWMD’s implementation
strategy and five-year funding plan for the water resource and water supply
development components of the approved North Florida Regional Water Supply Plan
(NFRWSP). The projects listed in the
Work Program demonstrate progress in implementing projects identified in the
NFRWSP or support the Plan’s objectives.
Also, the implementation of projects listed in the NFRWSP supports the
recovery strategy for the Lower Santa Fe and Ichetucknee Rivers and Priority
The District believes that this work program is adequate to
further the recovery of LSFI, to ensure water is available to timely meet the
water supply needs of existing and future reasonable-beneficial uses for a
1-in-10 -year drought event, and to avoid the adverse effects of competition
for water supplies based on the District’s established MFLs.
