UF/IFAS report finds Floridians value water resources, want to conserve

Hello Governor Scott – are you listening?  The University of Florida survey of adults all across Florida found that 93% said that clean, safe drinking water is the most important aspect of water management.  Following closely behind were clean beaches (90 percent), oceans, bays/estuaries (89 percent), lakes and rivers (89 percent) as highly or extremely important.

The Governor has an opportunity to stop the DEP from weakening our drinking water standards for carcinogenic toxic chemicals.  Between now and March 22nd, please let Governor Scott know that you are part of the 93% who rate clean drinking water your #1 priority when it comes to managing water resources.
