[ARCHIVED] District Launches New Website

Website ScreenshotLIVE OAK, FLA., March 5, 2019 – The Suwannee River Water Management District (District) is proud to announce the launch of its new website. The new, user-friendly site features updated navigation for users to find information easier and an improved design aimed at increasing site engagement. The website went live on March 1.

“We redesigned and reorganized the website to accommodate the public’s needs,” said Hugh Thomas, Executive Director at the District. “Allowing the public to easily access rain and river level data, flooding information, current news and other important information within the website was the primary goal throughout the redesign process.”

Pages such as river and lake levels, camping and recreation, flood mapping, e-permits, water data portal and flooding information are now all easily accessible through quick links on the front page of the new District website. The website features up-to-date content to inform and educate citizens, agencies and partners about the efforts of the District.

Along with quick links, featured spotlights, district updates and notices and upcoming calendar dates are featured on the home page. These highlighted sections will change throughout the year to reflect current topics within the District.

“The website redesign was an enormous effort that took over a year of planning and implementation,” said Katelyn Potter, Communications Chief at the District. “We could not have launched the redesigned website ahead of schedule without the dedicated staff who worked hard to ensure the site was providing the most up-to-date and detailed content for the public.”

The mobile version of the website was also updated with modern designs and improved navigation to provide consistency when viewing the website on all devices. The simple design of the website translates effortlessly when viewing it on a desktop or mobile device.
