Florida counties seeking water flow action

Published June 13, 2008
Some counties along the Apalachicola River are asking Gov. Charlie Crist to take legal action to block a reduction in water flow from Georgia and Alabama.

Gulf County this week was preparing to ask Crist to petition the federal courts to block the request, County Attorney Tim McFarland said. Franklin County made a similar request to Crist last Friday, saying the local seafood industry would be
devastated by a lack of fresh water.
