SRWD launches e-newsletterFeb 17th, 2011 | By Jacob | Category: Front Page, Outdoors
LIVE OAK, FL, February 17, 2011 – It’s out with the old and in with the new for the Suwannee River Water Management District’s RiverFronts newsletter. The monthly publication is converting from print format to an e-newsletter that will be posted on the District’s website beginning this month.
For about 10 years, RiverFronts was printed and mailed to subscribers quarterly before production was temporarily suspended last year, due in part to budget constraints. Now, via its website, the District is able to offer timely information in an attractive newsletter format at no cost. The new electronic format is also a plus for readers who are accustomed to being able to enlarge the size of type for easier readability.
The newsletter will present highlights of current District topics and events. Some of the features in the first edition include a list of hiking opportunities available to the public on District lands, answers to questions about current drought conditions and rainfall totals, and a reminder to resume to twice-a-week lawn irrigation with the start of Daylight Saving Time.
Readers can sign up to be notified by email when the newsletter is posted each month through the website’s Notify Me feature, located under Quick Links on the homepage at www.mysuwanneeriver.com.
