OSFR Gifts Silent Springs Book to Water Board Members
President Pam Smith followed through with the Board action to gift the Governing Board of the SJRWMD with a copy of the book, Silent Springs, by Dr. Bob Knight. Pam encouraged the SJRWMD board members to read the book and keep it as reference material when making decisions to issue additional water permits for groundwater pumping.
She also mentioned that the Florida Aquifer is not delineated by the water management districts but is connected to all of North and Central Florida so that decisions made by one water district management affect water in the entire Floridan Aquifer. The SJRWMD meets in Palatka every second Tuesday of the month and meetings are open to the public.
