Time to redouble efforts at protecting fragile river

Published Sep. 1, 2009 - The Florida Times-Union
Jacksonville now has a fertilizer ordinance, which puts the burden on all of us to use less fertilizer and to apply it in a river-friendly way when it is used.

Watering restrictions are also in place and, considering half of the water taken from the aquifer is used on landscaping, conservation is a key in stopping efforts to take millions of gallons of water a day from the river to quench the thirst of Central Florida.
