Hi I just bought some land on the Suwannee River near Rock Bluff (CR349). Does anybody know how often it floods or how deep the flood water gets?

The ideal time to check that out is BEFORE you buy. And make sure the neighbor or one of his/her friends does not own the property in question. Remember thaat old real estate quote ( Caveat emptor ) " Let the buyer beware ".

I know a man who bought a lot on the Suwannee then bought a mobile home and found out he was in the flood zone and it would cost another $20,000 to put the home on stilts.

Bill, the Suwannee River Water Management district has a web page that shows water levels on individual lots. I live near there - if you are on the Gilchrist side, close to Rock Bluff, you're probaly OK.

Thank you Leslie. I'm on the Dixie side, I'll try to look it up on that website.
