Did you know that the Suwanee River Water Management District is responsible for managing the water supply, water quality, flood protection, and natural systems in a 15-county area of Florida including 13 different river basins, and over 450 springs? They do all of this with a core team of 66 staff members and a variety of hydrologic monitoring equipment from Teledyne RD Instruments. On this episode of the podcast we have an interesting and fun discussion with Tara Rogers and Kevin Jones on the scope of their work, areas of responsibility, challenging operating conditions, and how important the data they collect is to residents and even the National Weather Service.
For more information on the work that Tara, Kevin, and the team at the Suwannee River Water Management district are doing to monitor and protect the rivers and springs in their district, visit their website at www.mysuwanneeriver.com.
