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 documentary video,Troubled Waters, was funded by St. Johns Riverkeeper and produced by Ray Hays and PRC Digital Media. This event is being hosted by the USGBC Green Carpet Film Series, Duval Audubon Society, and Northeast Florida Sierra Club.
The documentary will be shown (48 minutes) and then followed by a panel discussion moderated by St. Johns Riverkeeper. Panelists include:
Dr. Quint White, Jacksonville University Marine Science Research Institute
Alicia Smith, Rising Tides member
Robert Burks, Aquatic Biologist
Public questions will be encouraged during the panel discussion. The panel discussion will address steps that we can take to protect Florida’s waters.
- 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
