Drier Weather Impacting Water Levels

Drier weather in the past two weeks is beginning to affect water levels in the Floridan Aquifer in many areas of the District. As of September 23rd, 34% of the Floridan Aquifer wells surveyed had water levels above the 90th percentile, compared to 46% one week ago.

Despite this, water levels in Floridan Aquifer wells in Taylor, Levy, Bradford, and Alachua counties remain above the 90th percentile. The water level reported at the Floridan Aquifer well on the campus of the University of Florida is still near the maximum for the period of record (1976 – 2018).
