LIVE OAK, FL, February 23, 2010 – The Suwannee River Water Management District (District) will hold a town hall meeting March 11 in Mayo to report on restoration activities and to respond to questions related to District lands and hydrologic conditions in southern Lafayette County. The meeting will take place at Lafayette High School at 6:30 p.m.
Following a brief presentation, District officials will take questions and comments from the public.
“Residents and others have expressed interest in the restoration efforts at Mallory Swamp and throughout the Steinhatchee Basin,” said Bob Heeke, District senior land resources manager. “We would like to provide a forum to inform the public on these projects.”
The District purchased Mallory Swamp following the wildfire of 2001 and has since been working to restore the swamp’s hydrology, wetlands and natural communities.
