SRWMD to hold Dec. 13th public meeting on minimum flows/levels for Crystal Chain of Lakes


The St. Johns River Water Management District will hold a public meeting on Dec. 13 as part of the peer review process for the surface water model developed in support of the Crystal Chain of Lakes minimum flows and levels (MFLs). The purpose of establishing MFLs is to protect the Crystal Chain of Lakes from significant harm due to groundwater or surface water withdrawals. In March 2022, the District completed a continuous simulation hydrological model for the Crystal Chain of Lakes using HSPF. During this public meeting, District staff will review the HSPF model with the peer reviewer and the public. Review of this model is part of the comprehensive Central Florida Water Initiative (CFWI) peer review process for the Crystal Chain of Lake.

The public meeting will include a site visit. A presentation begins at 10 a.m., with the site visit starting at 12:30 p.m.

The meeting will be held at:

Lake Mary City Hall
100 N. Country Club Road
Lake Mary, FL 32746
