Despite their importance, Florida’s waterways are suffering from significant pollution problems such as fertilizer runoff, poorly treated municipal and industrial wastewater, and failing septic tanks. Combined with the impacts from a rapidly growing population we have a potential recipe for disaster.
This event is being co-hosted by the Stetson Institute for Water and Environmental Resilience and St. Johns Riverkeeper. This documentary video,Troubled Waters, was funded by St. Johns Riverkeeper and produced by Ray Hays and PRC Digital Media.
The documentary will be shown (48 minutes) and then followed by a panel discussion. Immediately following the showing, a panel discussion will commence moderated by Jane Durocher, Middle Basin Advocacy Director for St. Johns Riverkeeper. Invited panelists include the following:
Lisa Rinaman, St Johns Riverkeeper
Clay Henderson, Stetson Institute for Water and Environmental Resilience
Mary Sue Scott, Save Gemini’s Land
Public questions will be encouraged during the panel discussion. The panel discussion will address steps that we can take to protect Florida’s waters.
This event is free and open to the public.
