WWALS Watershed Coalition advocates for conservation and stewardship of the Withlacoochee, Willacoochee, Alapaha, Little, Santa Fe, and Suwannee River watersheds in south Georgia and north Florida through education, awareness, environmental monitoring, and citizen activities.
Union County, Florida apparently takes its duties to the public seriously, with
a series of meetings through the next year about mining (including phosphate mining)
in its Comprehensive Plan and Land Development Regulations (LDR).
People in Union County and everywhere who don’t want another phosphate mine
leaching into groundwater, rivers, and springs and driving away other jobs,
please show up at the meetings or write to the
Union Board of County Commissioners (BOCC).
For example, start by advocating the Commissioners extend their moratorium
against phosphate mining.
