District's bucket of facts is leaky

Last modified 5/6/2008 (Letter to the Editor)
Interestingly, in a May 1 article titled "Florida fights Georgia water plan," it was reported that Florida is opposing Georgia's water withdrawal due to the adverse effect already seen in Apalachicola Bay.

The result of last year's Georgia experiment was increased salinity levels, which resulted in oyster kills throughout the bay.

This is precisely the same issue presented if millions of gallons of fresh water are taken out of the St. Johns River and piped to the uncontrollable and mismanaged growth of Seminole County.
