                                                        YOU GONNA DRINK THAT?

 

WATER QUALITY AND QUANTITY…. IT MATTERS.

Water, water everywhere and nary a drop to drink? Could that be the Sunshine State’s fate one day?

  • Florida’s Environmental Regulatory Commission allows more cancer-causing toxins in our water.
  • Spring flows are diminshing and pollution is increasing
  • Population growth means more demand for water with less supply
  • Everglades restoration proceeds at a snail’s pace
  • Conservation measures depend on public education and limited incentives
  • Groundwater continues to be free, with no market forces to allocate it 

        What can we do to save our waters? 

The following experts will discuss the water crisis at the League’s April 12 Hot Topics luncheon.
