Applications sought for cost-share projects

The St. Johns River Water Management District is accepting applications for cost-share projects that conserve water, contribute to developing alternative water supplies and sources, or improve surface water quality.

The District has earmarked $15 million for cost-share projects and anticipates making the funding available in the budget beginning Oct. 1, 2015, subject to Governing Board approval.

The application form and guidelines, evaluation criteria and other details are available on the District's cost-share web pages.

The deadline for submitting applications is 5 p.m. on March 13, 2015.

Share your experiences of water levels in Upper Ocklawaha River Basin lakes

The District encourages businesses, residents and recreational users in the Upper Ocklawaha River Basin to participate in a brief online survey to share experiences with water levels on lakes Apopka, Beauclair, Dora, Eustis, Harris, Griffin, and Yale, in Lake, Marion and Orange counties.

The information will be used in developing minimum flows and levels (MFLs) for the lakes in the basin. Results from the survey will assist the District in assessing whether the draft MFLs for these lakes would provide protection for recreation and navigation. District staff seek to gather data that will describe water-related recreation facilities, recreational activities and primary recreational functions that could be affected by the lakes' water levels.

The survey will be available through Jan. 30, 2015.

Permitting tip

Minor permit changes may qualify for letter modification

A consumptive use permit (CUP) may need to be modified over time. Some changes can be made through a letter modification. If a minor change qualifies for a letter modification, the permittee can send a written request for modification to the District by mail or email. There is no cost for a letter modification.

Examples of minor changes include:

  • Adding a pump to a man-made surface water management system
  • Increasing the surface water allocation up to 100,000 gallons per day
  • Minor revisions or updates to CUP conditions
  • Changing station names
  • Adding a backup well to meet peak demands
  • Minor relocations of existing wells

For information about changes that would qualify for a letter modification, see Chapter 40C-2.331 Modification of Permits (page 15). Assistance is also available by contacting the District at (386) 329-4570.
