The St. Johns River Water Management District is working to protect Florida's water resources through its minimum flows and levels (MFLs) program. Establishing MFLs is an important goal in the district's work of planning for adequate water supplies for today and for future generations while also protecting the district's water resources. The district is setting MFLs for lakes, streams, rivers, wetlands, springs and aquifers.
MFLs adopted in 2016
