West Palm Beach, FL - South Florida water levels are near the top of their normal ranges to start the dry season because of heavy rainfall at the start of 2016 and near-average wet season rainfall.
South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) water managers today predicted a low risk of drought conditions or water supply shortages in the coming months.
"Water levels are where we want them at the Nov. 1 start of the dry season," said SFWMD Chief Engineer John Mitnik. "The goal is to maintain balanced water management to meet supply needs while providing flood control."
