September rainfall was well below average across the district. As a result, the 12-month rainfall totals are now near the long-term average, after being well above average for many months. Coastal counties had the largest rainfall deficits during September.
An inside look into district projects
District implements a variety of projects to protect water resources to protect water supplies, water quality and natural systems, and provide flood protection.
Ongoing restoration work and new projects are improving the health of this central Florida lake, as seen through expanded coverage of aquatic grasses, increases in gamefish and improving water clarity.
Project will help to replenish the Floridan aquifer in northeast Florida using flow from the flood-prone Black Creek in Clay County.
Dredging began in January 2017 on this multi-partner project to remove muck from the river and Elbow Creek (tributaries of the Indian River Lagoon) to improve water quality.
