Recent rainfall was welcome, but wasn’t enough

By on March 10th, 2011

The state of Florida has seen some of the driest conditions in history this year. The recent rain storms have been short-lived. Water management officials say what the state really needs are the longer soaking rain storms. Randy Smith with the South Florida Water Management District says Lake Okeechobee is showing signs of the drought as the water level on the lake has fallen below 12 feet for the first time this season. Smith says since the state isn’t getting enough rain, the water management district may have to enforce more water regulations to save the water that the state does have.
