Ichetucknee Springshed Water Quality Improvement Project Completed

LIVE OAK, FLA., Oct. 28, 2016 — The largest constructed treated wetlands of its kind in the Suwannee River Water Management District (District) is complete and will provide 1.58 million gallons of recharge water into the Upper Floridian aquifer each day, while creating 120 acres of wetlands. The Ichetucknee Springshed Water Quality Improvement Project completion was celebrated by an on-site ribbon cutting with partners and local, state and federal officials.

“Our springs are one of Florida’s greatest resources and are absolutely vital to our local and regional economies,” said Representative Elizabeth Porter. “North Florida is home to the highest concentration of first magnitude springs in the nation and I have and will continue to support laws and funding to protect these treasured resources. This project demonstrates my personal commitment as well as the legislature’s commitment to ensure that our springs are restored and protected for continual enjoyment by future generations.”
