District identifies scientists to peer review draft minimum levels for Upper Ocklawaha River basin lakes; seeks public input on selection

St. Johns River Water Management District staff are developing draft minimum lake levels for the Upper Ocklawaha River Basin lakes Apopka, Beauclair, Dora, Eustis, Harris and Griffin, located in Lake, Marion and Orange counties.

A Notice of Rule Development was published on Jan. 6, 2014, to initiate the rulemaking process for the lakes. The District has decided to have a peer review conducted prior to the completion of the rulemaking process.

District staff are soliciting stakeholder input on the proposed scientific peer review panel members identified to conduct the review of the draft minimum lake levels. A stakeholder teleconference on the proposed panel members is scheduled from 10–11 a.m. on Sept. 3. Written stakeholder comments should be provided no later than 5 p.m. on Sept. 12.

Minimum water levels are set to prevent significant harm to the water resources or ecology of an area resulting from permitted water withdrawals. The levels define how often and for how long high, intermediate and low water levels should occur to prevent significant harm.
