The Senate Select Committee on Florida’s Inland Water Resources will hold a public hearing tomorrow morning from 8:30 to 10:30 at the Quality Inn Riverfront Hotel in Palatka. People are encouraged to attend to give their points of view on what are the best ways to protect all of Florida’s springs, rivers and other resources. As Donna Green-Townsend reports, the hearing takes place in the same location as a three-day “Rally For The Rivers” event.[audio:http://www.wuft.org/media/audio/waterD.mp3]
