DEP Chief Meets with Residents on Drought

Published Nov 30, 2007
Residents and business leaders say they've seen a 30 percent drop in the number of oysters being harvested, and if more freshwater isn't put into the bay by spawning season in March, next year's oyster harvest will be even worse.

DEP Secretary Mike Sole says the current Army Corps plan has the five percent water reduction lasting through June 1. He says Florida hopes to change that date through talks with the other states. If not, a lawsuit will be their last resort.
