OSFR advisor Robert Knight has a new book about the springs. This a compilation of his many newspaper articles, a true wealth of information about North Florida’s springs. Delivery is fast, our was received two days after ordering.
Unlike the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the water management districts, Robert Knight and the Florida Springs Institute have no political agenda and you can count on truth and objectivity in his writings.
The fact is that our water “protective” agencies are allowing our springs to die while giving preference to industry and for-profit water users. Robert Knight spells this out in his new book.
