Governing Board consideration of District Water Supply Plan to be rescheduled; staff continue to review stakeholder and public input

The draft District Water Supply Plan (Plan) will not be considered at the Aug. 12, 2014, St. Johns River Water Management District Governing Board meeting. District staff are continuing to evaluate public and stakeholder input.

The first draft of the Plan was made available for review and comment by the public, local governments and other stakeholders in December 2013. Six public meetings and a technical methods workshop were held in January and February 2014. Public comments were accepted at the public meetings and workshop, online and by mail and email. The District revised the Plan based on the input received and a new draft was released on July 11, 2014. Since that time, additional dialogue with stakeholders has occurred.

The District is committed to an inclusive process that ensures ample opportunity for public and stakeholder input and for staff to thoroughly evaluate all comments received. The draft plan will be scheduled for District Governing Board consideration at a future public meeting.

The draft Plan was developed as part of the District’s work to ensure that adequate and sustainable water supplies are available to meet future needs while protecting the environment. The Plan is essential to the District’s core mission for water supply — to implement a regional strategy to provide sufficient water for users and the environment.

Additional information about the Plan is available at floridaswater.com/DWSP.
