Orlando-area students join fray to conserve St. Johns River water

Published 4/20/2008
Central Florida high-school students are entering a contest to create the most compelling public-service messages to conserve the beleaguered river.

According to the Riverkeeper Web site, each resident along the St. Johns waterway uses as much as 150 gallons of water daily, about 50 gallons more per day than the national per-person average. The organization wants lawmakers to look at other means before tapping the St. Johns River to solve the water crisis.
