Governor Crist Encourages Federal Support for Apalachicola River Basin

Published 05/28/09
Governor Crist also called on Secretary Salazar to address the tri-state water controversy over the management of the reservoirs on the Apalachicola, Chattahoochee and Flint river systems. He emphasized that the impacts of drought on the three-river basin are not limited to Georgia. The drought and resulting flow reductions also threaten the very existence for some 1,300 families of third and fourth-generation oystermen and the economy of the Apalachicola community. Florida’s Apalachicola River and Bay is the most productive contained commercial fishery in Florida.
