Troubled Waters. Connections and Consequences | StJohnsRiverKeeper
All of Florida’s water is connected, and so are the forces that are overusing and polluting them. The only parts of the water picture in Florida that are not connected are the wishes of the citizens to the actions of the State’s leaders. In “Troubled Waters: Connections and Consequences,” we find out how the St. Johns River, its springs and its tributaries are a bellwether for the health and future of Florida’s economy and the consequences we will all face if we don’t change the way we treat our Troubled Waters.
Watch the video. What is happening to the St. Johns River is emblematic of the water quality and supply challenges we are facing throughout Florida, highlighting the significant pollution problems that exist and the impending water crisis that we face.
What do you think? What water supply issues do you have in your local community? How local authorities are managing water supplies?
