It's not too late! Pick up your copy of the latest Folio Weekly magazine and read the excellent article by Owen Holmes about the proposal in Central Florida to withdrawal water from the St. Johns River. You can also learn more about this issue by visiting the Riverkeeper website and reading the fact sheet that is available on the homepage.
We are gearing up to address this issue by creating a public awareness campaign and a water conservation program. Riverkeeper is also researching Florida water law to better understand our legal options, and we are assembling a team of scientists to review the St. Johns River Water Management District studies that are being used to justify the withdrawal. We also hope to put together a coalition of concerned citizens, businesses, and orginizations. We'll keep you posted about how you can get involved and join the effort to promote Conservation First.
