Johanna de Graffenreid of Gulf Restoration Network has sent the following final details as to time, place and the agenda for the Grassroots Summit to Stop Sabal Trail,  August 6, 2016.  We need to come together to stamp out this unnecessary, dangerous and destructive metal snake than nobody wants, except a few greedy exploiters.

Sabal Trail does not care about our springs, rivers and environment.  If they destroy Falmouth Caverns they are incapable of repairing damage to the underground rivers and caverns.  The fracking end product, LNG,  carried into Florida will very likely be exported to some foreign country.

OSFR is one of the sponsors of this important event.  Make plans to attend and help put this abomination to rest.

North and central Florida are covered with over 900 pristine springs directly connected to the Floridan Aquifer system. This vast underground cave network is a gem right underneath our feet. Unfortunately, Sabal Trail has yet to address the potential for the high pressure pipeline to burst in or under the Floridan Aquifer – the main water supply for the entire state of Florida. Our waters, wetlands and communities are too important to risk for this dangerous pipeline.
