Metadata Summary: SJRWMD Minimum Flows and Levels


Dataset Type: Monitoring/Sampling Data
Name of Data Source: SJRWMD Minimum Flows and Levels
Number of Water Resources Sampled: Unknown
Datasource Abbreviation (dataset): SJRWMD_MFL
Description of Datasource: Florida law (Chapter 373, Florida Statutes) requires Florida's water management districts to establish minimum flows and levels (MFLs) for water courses, water bodies, and aquifers that represent the limit at which further withdrawals would be significantly harmful to the water resources or ecology of an area. The St. Johns River Water Management District developed a multiple MFLs approach to define a long-term hydrologic regime necessary to prevent significant harm. Adopted MFLs are implemented through Consumptive Use Permitting and Water Supply Planning programs. A priority list and schedule for establishing MFLs is submitted annually to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, as required by law.
