November was wetter than normal in Suwannee River Valley, according to water management

Live Oak — November is typically the driest month of the year, but this November was unusually wet. The Suwannee River Water Management District received an average of 3.6 inches of rainfall, which ranked it number 15 for the most rainfall in the 80-year record.

Though there was not much boost in most river levels, conditions improved on the Middle Suwannee River, causing increases in flow on some springs. Hart Springs in Gilchrist County was measured at 66 million gallons per day (mgd), the second highest flow on record. Otter Springs measured at 12.6 mgd, its highest recorded flow since 1998.

Groundwater levels fell in most areas from the previous month, but remain normal throughout the District. There is an above average probability of rainfall over the next week.
