The Department has proposed development of a new chapter of the Florida Administrative Code, Chapter 62-42, F.A.C., Minimum Flows and Levels. This new chapter will set forth rules establishing Minimum Flows and Levels (MFLs) adopted by the Department. This rulemaking will adopt MFLs and the regulatory portion of the associated recovery strategy for the Lower Santa Fe and Ichetucknee Rivers and Associated Priority Springs.

Rules 62-42.100 and 62.42.200 did not require a SERC because they set forth only scope and definitions and do not have independent regulatory effect.
