Swimmers and boaters should avoid activities on the Santa Fe River
Flooding along the Santa Fe River is expected to persist well into next week, and Alachua County’s Department of Environmental Protection is advising people to be extremely cautious of dangerous conditions in the river and flooded areas. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Emily Burris spoke with Environmental Protection Director for Alachua County, Chris Bird, about why it’s so important people avoid the river.
For more information on the conditions of the river people can go to the Suwannee River Water Management District website at www.mysuwanneeriver.com.
