  • Expanded East-Central Florida Transient (ECFTX) Groundwater Model

    The Expanded East-Central Florida Transient (ECFTX) Groundwater Model is a three-dimensional model that extends from the Gulf of Mexico on the west to the Atlantic Ocean on the east and from southern Marion County in the north to the Highlands/Glades county line in the south. The model simulates groundwater flow in the surficial aquifer, intermediate aquifer/confining unit, Upper and Lower Floridan aquifers, and associated middle confining units. The model will be used to evaluate the effects from changes in groundwater withdrawals and other components of the water cycle on water levels in lakes, rivers, springs, and wetlands in support of the 2020 update of the Regional Water Supply Plan for the Central Florida Water Initiative area.

  • Minimum Flows and Levels Reevaluation for the Chassahowitzka and Homosassa River/Spring Systems

    Independent Scientific Peer Review of Minimum Flows Proposed for the Chassahowitzka and Homosassa River/Spring Systems in Citrus and Hernando Counties. Minimum flows and levels are limits established by the District Governing Board for surface waters and groundwater that are intended to prevent significant harm to the water resources or ecology of an area that may be caused by water withdrawals. Minimum flows were established for the Chassahowitzka and Homosassa river/spring systems in Citrus and Hernando counties in 2013. Proposed minimum flows based on reevaluation of these established minimum flows are summarized in two separate revised final draft reports and appendices available on the District’s Minimum Flows and Levels Documents and Reports page.

  • Reservation for Lake Hancock/Saddle Creek

    The District is establishing a reservation for water stored in Lake Hancock and released to Saddle Creek for recovery of minimum flows in the upper Peace River. A reservation defines a quantify of water set aside from the water-use permitting process for the protection of fish and wildlife or public health and safety. A minimum flow is the limit at which further withdrawals would be significantly harmful to the water resources or ecology of the area.
