North Florida Regional Water Supply Plan Demonstration and Press Event

  • 17 Jan 2017
  • 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
  • Alachua City Hall, 15100 NW 142nd Terrace, Alachua, Florida 32615


Please join the Florida Springs Council  at the Alachua City Hall on Tuesday, January 17 at 10 a.m. for a demonstration against the draft North Florida Regional Water Supply Plan (NFRWSP). At 11 a.m., governing board members for the St. Johns River and Suwannee River water management districts will take public comment and vote to adopt the plan.
 
The NFRWSP was prepared to identify the finite limits of water supply availability and to lay out a cost-effective plan that can attain a sustainable water future for north Florida.

In December of last year, the FSC and other member organizations submitted review comments on the deficiencies identified in the draft plan. The FSC's comments can be found here
 
The joint governing board meeting is the best opportunity for the affected public to influence the water future of north Florida. Floridians need to substantially reduce our reliance on water from the Floridan aquifer if we wish to restore and protect the region’s springs, rivers, lakes, and wetlands.
 
Bring signs for the demonstration and make your voice heard in Alachua on Tuesday, January 17!
