Public meetings Dec. 3rd to discuss model peer review for lakes Apshawa and Sylvan

PALATKA — The St. Johns River Water Management District will hold two public meetings on Dec. 3 to discuss initial peer review comments on the surface water models for Lake Apshawa in Lake County and Sylvan Lake in Seminole County, both located within the Central Florida Water Initiative (CFWI) area.

The district is currently completing a reevaluation of its adopted minimum flows and levels (MFLs) for Lake Apshawa and Sylvan Lake to ensure their continued protection. The current plan is to submit a Notice of Proposed Rule (NPR) for each lake by the end of 2020.

The district has updated Hydrological Simulation Program Fortran (HSPF) models that will be used to support the development and/or assessment of MFLs for each lake. These public meetings will involve a discussion of initial peer review comments of these models, including model calibration and the long-term simulation models developed by district staff. Stakeholder comments regarding these models are welcome.
