WWALS Watershed Coalition advocates for conservation and stewardship of the Withlacoochee, Willacoochee, Alapaha, Little, and Suwannee River watersheds in south Georgia and north Florida through education, awareness, environmental monitoring, and citizen activities.
Members of the Floridians Against Fracking Anti-Fracking Coalition
and other supporters and friends celebrated tonight when the
Monticello City Council voted unanimously to support a ban on
fracking by resolution. Multiple members from OSFR were present and
addressed the Council.
TELL GOVERNOR DEAL THAT THE SABAL TRAIL GAS PIPELINE THREATENS PRIVATE
PROPERTY, CLEAN WATER, AND HEALTHY COMMUNITIES
Please take immediate action, today, to tell Governor Nathan Deal’s
office that you oppose the siting of Spectra Energy’s Sabal Trail
pipeline through the Withlacoochee River watershed. Call
404-656-1776 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. and tell the staffer that
answers, “I am opposed to routing the Sabal Trail pipeline
through the Withlacoochee River watershed; I urge Governor Deal to
do everything in his power to stop this project”.
The goal of the coalition is a ban on fracking in Florida. To that end, we support state, and local efforts to ban fracking.
Fracking and drilling associated with fracking for oil and natural
gas poses a direct and immediate threat to the drinking water, air,
food, health, wildlife, climate, and economy of communities across
