Lake Alice Watershed Management Plan Upcoming Workshops

The University of Florida is hosting a series of visioning workshops to gather input from key stakeholders on the Lake Alice Watershed Management Plan. There will be three opportunities for those interested to share their input. Two virtual meetings, on September 12 from 12-1 p.m. and September 27 from 7-8 p.m., and one in-person on October 4 from 4:30-7 p.m. at the Straughn Professional Development Center on the UF campus (no registration necessary for in-person and participants can attend any time between 4:30-7 p.m.).

The Lake Alice Watershed is approximately 1,000 acres, primarily on the main UF campus. The watershed has significant topography, and a great deal of development has occurred over more than 100 years. While immediate needs and challenges have been addressed through the years, a stormwater management framework is needed.

The Watershed Management Plan (WMP) for Lake Alice will include the lake, creeks, wetlands, and stormwater infrastructure. The WMP will provide a holistic, cohesive framework for campus stormwater management that addresses current construction, operation, and maintenance needs and provides recommendations for future stormwater management as development on campus continues.
