Low Lake Levels in Keystone Heights Could Be Moved Lower
CLAY COUNTY - The future of North Central Florida's lakes could come down to lowering standards...because those standards couldn't be met.
Minimum flow levels are set on lakes and rivers and dictate just how low water levels can go.
Lake Geneva in Keystone Heights has been in recovery for two years and the mayor says those levels have not improved.
So the St. John's River Water Management District met Tuesday to discuss considering lowering those already low levels in 2014.
It's a move that the Keystone Heights mayor says is not helping the problem.
Kyla Ryan, TV20: "Over the past two years how have the levels changed?"
Mary Lou Hildreth, Mayor, Keystone Heights: "Little to none - I mean there has been some more water we did have a rainy summer...but no pun intended it's a drop in the bucket."
The St. John's River Water Management District says that the water levels set on Lake Geneva in 1994 were never achievable.
