South Atlantic LCC

Setting a course for a sustainable landscape

Thanks to all of you who have sent along comments and been part of the Rivers and Streams group calls we've been having related to understanding the impacts of current and future flows on aquatic resources in the LCC. It's been a great discussion and the staff of your LCC has put together a small representative team to take the results of that discussion and provide a recommendation back to the steering committee this month on which proposal in the future flows focus area should be funded.

 

For those of you new to the group, this website group crafted the specific information needs related to current and future aquatic flows in the SALCC for the 2011 request for proposals. In reviewing the proposals for this focus area, the partnership committee felt that, given the foundational nature of this information, that additional discussions on key issues needed to happen within the aquatic community. There have now been a number of very well attended calls to work out those issues and now everything is on track for a project selection by the end of the month. This is going to fill a huge gap in conservation planning in the LCC and it's great to see it moving forward!

FYI - Within your LCC, the Suwannee River Water Management District (SRWMD) and St Johns River WMD have completed minimum flows and levels  (MFLs) studies for parts of the LCC per Lower Suwannee River and I think St Marys River.  These studies should include significant geological discussions, springs studies, habitat and other related stream ecology elements.

Great to hear, George, and thanks for the heads up. Looks like there's some really detailed info on those studies on both the SRWMD and St Johns River WMD websites. Very helpful.
