Report helpful in quest to revive St. Johns River

Published 8/15/2008 - The Florida Times-Union
The release of an important document last week was overshadowed by Mayor John Peyton's pledge to challenge Georgia-Pacific's plans to dump the foul pollution from its Palatka mill into the middle of the St. Johns River.

The plan is to update the study annually. That's critical because, as the report points out, there's much that isn't known about the St. Johns and the effects of the threats facing it - Georgia-Pacific's effluent and the withdrawal of millions of gallons of water a day among them.
