The Governing Board approved publication of Notices of Proposed Rule at its November 10th meeting, and the notices were published in the Florida Administrative Register on November 24, 2015.

Public meetings

The St. Johns River Water Management District held public meetings Feb. 3, 2016, and Feb. 4, 2016 at its Maitland Service Center to seek public input as part of its work to develop minimum flows and levels(MFLs) for the Upper Ocklawaha River Basin (UORB), including lakes Apopka, Beauclair, Dora, Eustis, Harris and Griffin, in Lake, Marion and Orange counties. The district also initiated formal peer review of the UORB hydrologic model (HSPF — Hydrological Simulation Program—Fortran). The primary purpose of these workshops was for the peer reviewers to work together to collectively develop a single peer-review report regarding the UORB hydrologic model. The models, supporting documents, and peer review panel and stakeholder review comments regarding these models and documents can be accessed using the following link:
