Summary:This article describes the 30-year history of the City of Lakeland, Florida northeast wellfield from project conceptualization to production and continued monitoring. It also describes a multi-disciplinary approach to evaluation of causes of water-stress of on-site wetlands and the successful interpretation of causes and possible remedies. Implementation of restoration activities agreed between the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) and the City of Lakeland in 2007 allows the City to withdraw groundwater from a stable source of supply without harming nearby wetlands. The restoration project reversed hydrologic changes and harm caused by historical agricultural and silvicultural practices.
