Get facts about Seminole project

Published 8/16/08- The Florida Times-Union
Stories in the media continue to mention potential environmental impacts to the St. Johns River resulting from Seminole County's Yankee Lake Project.

In fact, because Jacksonville and St. Johns County have been unable to identify any evidence contradicting the St. Johns River Water Management District's finding of no environmental impact to its portion of the river, the district has signed agreements stipulating Seminole's withdrawals won't harm the portion of the river located in Duval and St. Johns counties. This means no discussion of total maximum daily loads, salinity changes and detrimental environmental impacts to the river at the administrative hearing in October.
