Tuesday, October 22, 9 am – SWFWMD’s Governing Board meeting – Chass MFL redetermination

October 22, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Important notice about expected increase in the Chassahowitzka River Minimum Flows and Levels!!!

Do you support continued flow reduction on our rivers? Do you agree with Southwest Florida Water Management District’s position that 15% harm to any aspect of the environment of our rivers is acceptable? SWFWMD staff is recommending an 8% natural flow reduction for Chassahowitzka and a 5% natural flow reduction for Homosassa.

On Tuesday October 22, SWFWMD’s Governing Board is expected to address the topic of Minimum Flows for the Chassahowitzka and Homosassa rivers. Please attend and let your voice be heard. The meeting will begin at 9:00 AM at SWFWMD’s Brooksville headquarters. 2379 Broad Street (US 41), Brooksville, 34604.
