The Suwannee River Water Management District announced on Friday that all district lands are reopened after closing for potential Hurricane Ian impact.  

Earlier this week, the forecast predicted heavy wind and rain, so out of an abundance of cautions, the district closed its lands in Alachua, Bradford, Dixie, Gilchrist, Levy, Union, and coastal Jefferson and Taylor counties ahead of Hurricane Ian’s arrival.  

After inspecting the properties on Thursday, District staff found little to no damage.
