Water Shortage Warning

A water shortage warning remains in effect for all surface and groundwater sources in Baker, Clay, Flagler, Lake, Nassau, Marion, and Putnam counties located within the District. 

In March 2017, the St. Johns River Water Management District Governing Board approved a Water Shortage Warning for seven counties due to hydrologic trends that reflected the effects of below-average rainfall across parts of the district. In May 2017, the order was expanded to include all counties within the district’s jurisdiction.

The objective of the Water Shortage Warning Order is to reduce water use and increase awareness of the need for conservation. Although conditions have not yet reached a point where there is an expectation of insufficient water to meet anticipated demand and protect water resources, current conditions do warrant heightened water conservation in all areas within the jurisdiction of the district.
