    Folks... the drought is deepening and our Water Management Districts and Governor are not acting. Annette and Mark Long just observed that both Fanning and Manatee Springs are reversing at high tide. The flow at high tide is down to less than 10 cfs. Most of us recall a time when the flow coming out of Manatee was almost too strong to swim against. The time for drastic conservation measures is long past. The time to stop permits for massive dairy operations is long past. Please get active in the political process in North Florida. Without drastic measures you may not just be out of a dive site, you may turn on the tap and get nothing but air.

    Annette did a great job speaking to the Suwannee River Water Management District Board... here is a link to the video:

    Is there a petition circulating for those residents of Florida to sign, or something that those that live outside of FL can do to help with this?
