Scientists ask just how much can the St. Johns lose

Published 9/18/2008 - The Florida Times-Union
Taking too much water from the St. Johns River could fuel toxic algae blooms and suck water from underground aquifers, scientists meeting Wednesday said.

During Wednesday's public meeting, attended by about 100 people, researchers described computer models of subjects including how salt content in the river might change. That projection suggested other factors, including dredging to accommodate larger ships in Jacksonville's port, could have a larger impact on how much ocean water enters the river.
