Still Dry Even After Heavy Rains
Things haven't changed.
All of the rain this week from Beryl did not make much of a difference for businesses that rely on healthy water levels.
At one business in Alachua County, frogging, gatoring and fishing were once great sources of revenue.
Now all of that has been taken away.
An empty creek is what Alachua County residents get to look forward to when taking a vacation, camping.
Cross Creek has been dry for almost a year now and it was thought that the recent rains would bring some water.
Owner of Twin Lakes Camping and Fishing, Jeff Septer says the small puddle from Beryl is the most he has seen in a full year.
Unfortunately it is not enough to bring his business back to normal.
The air boats that now sit on land have hurt septer's pocket, and he says the last time he made any money with them was in January.
Septer looks for major improvement to come along and hopes that the county might step in to bring him back to business.
