Current River and Lake Levels

Listed below are river and lake levels at monitoring stations for the last 5 days. Stations update every 1-2 hours, while the page updates at 35 minutes past the hour. You may need to refresh/reload the page to see the latest available data. These data are provisional; please see disclaimer regarding use of the data. To locate a station, use our interactive map. The river levels are given in the survey datum NGVD1929 (NGVD29), which can be visualized as feet above mean sea level. These values show the elevation of the water surface above sea level, and not how deep the water is relative to the bottom. Flood forecasts are issued by the National Weather Service for certain gages, and are posted when available.

Important Change in River Level Measurements

Beginning in August 2016, the District will start implementation of the use of a new vertical datum, the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD88). In the past, the District has used the National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 (NGVD29). The new datum will result in a downward shift of between 0.64 to 0.90 feet depending on location. There is no change in the actual river level, only the value used to represent the level is different. The full conversion is expected to be complete by November 1, 2016.

More information about the vertical datum change may be found at http://www.mysuwanneeriver.com/VerticalDatum or by calling the District offices at 386-362-1001 and asking to speak with Tom Mirti, Director of Water Resources.

Alligator Lake in Lake City is dry at the gage location and the actual lake elevation is lower than that which is being shown below.

Please note that all river levels and forecast stages currently provided on this page and related pages on mysuwanneeriver.org are all referenced to the National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929

The National Weather Service updated the flood stage for the Withlacoochee River near Pinetta from 79 ft NGVD to 74 feet NGVD in 2015. This change was recently updated on this webpage. Impacts associated with specific river levels at this station have not changed.
