Franklin County opposes river flow cuts

Published November 27, 2007
Franklin County is calling on Gov. Charlie Crist to oppose reductions in water flowing into the Apalachicola River, and other counties may join in the effort.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers wants to reduce water flowing into the Apalachicola River by up to 17 percent in response to a drought gripping the region. The Corps began with a 5 percent cut in flow on Nov. 16.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is holding a meeting Friday at 11:30 a.m. in the Franklin County courthouse annex to hear concerns about the river.
