The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) announces a workshop in which all persons are invited. There will be two opportunities to attend the workshop.
The rule to be discussed includes minimum flows for the Lower Santa Fe and Ichetucknee Rivers and Priority Springs (LSFIR) and any associated recovery or prevention strategy required by Section 373.0421, F.S., which generally affect consumptive use permittees and may affect applicants for surface water management permits in all applicable water management districts without the need for further rulemaking by the water management districts. The LSFIR includes 6 Outstanding Florida Springs as defined by subsection 373.802(4), F.S., and is therefore subject to 373.805, F.S.
DEP will present the same items at each date. The workshop will occur during the following dates and times:
April 5, 2022, 1 p.m. Eastern Time (Suwannee River Water Management District, Suwannee Room, 9225 CR 49, Live Oak, FL 32060)
