LIVE OAK, FLA., Sept. 19, 2018 – In an effort to improve outreach with local citizens, the Suwannee River Water Management District (District) is seeking public input on the perceptions, knowledge and use of the water resources throughout the Suwannee Valley.
“At the District, we believe strongly that fulfilling our mission of responsibly stewarding the water resources of the Suwannee Valley includes understanding the perceptions and concerns of our local citizens,” said Katelyn Potter, communications director for the District. “This effort is an important step in improving the dialogue between the District and the citizens of our area.”
To gather input, the District has launched an online questionnaire that gathers information on resource use, recreation, issues awareness, and more. The survey is part of a larger outreach effort by the District to more actively engage citizens and stakeholders in the water management process.
“Citizen and stakeholder engagement with District issues is vital to overcome our water resource challenges,” said Potter. “This questionnaire allows us to gain feedback from those we would not normally hear from.”
Visit www.MySuwanneeRiver.com/Survey to complete the questionnaire. The questionnaire is available online until September 30, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. It takes less than five minutes to complete and is accessible from any mobile device. Responses are anonymous.
For more information or for questions regarding the questionnaire, please contact the District by calling 386.362.1001.
