Lower Santa Fe & Ichetucknee Rivers & Priority Springs
Strike previously adopted minimum flows, and adopt new minimum flows
This an extremely important meeting.  The State is determining the fate of our springs and rivers here.  If they set the MFLs to allow greater withdrawals, they could remove the protective categories of the Santa Fe.  That would be an easy out for the State and allow industry to further destroy the rivers and springs.  The State is fully capable of doing this, as they have done similar actions before.
