RiverTown Won't Control Its Dirt

Once again, the massive RiverTown development project in St. Johns County has muddied the creeks as a result of poorly managed construction-site runoff. Last week, the regulatory agencies announced that the previous water quality violations at the site were significant enough to warrant a fine or penalty that is yet to be determined. Scroll down to see pictures of the first violations.

Apparently, they didn't get the message. Ben Williams sent us these photos that he took on Sunday morning of two of the creeks that run through the RiverTown property. This demonstrates why it is so important that citizens keep their eyes open and help us to monitor these construction sites for potential water quality violations. If you see muddy water, please contact us at 904-256-7591.
