As Lake Apopka North Shore repairs continue, pumping initiated to lower floodwaters

On Friday, October 27, the St. Johns River Water Management District announced the latest on the Lake Apopka North Shore repairs to fix the damage due to Hurricane Irma.

One update is that pumping began at Lake Apopka North Shore on Monday, October 23. While this pumping has no effect on the areas east of the Apopka-Beauclair Canal (where the Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive is located), it may help water levels on portions of the 20-mile Loop Trail on the west side.

As water levels subside and assessments are completed, the district continues to provide weekly updates on the status of repairs and recreation at the Lake Apopka North Shore.
