Last night we learned the real reason Florida water is in crisis during our March, Making a Difference event. Bud Duthie, President/CEO at Synergena International, Inc. shared the good, the bad and the ugly about Florida’s water quality. From the other experts in attendance, we learn it’s not a lack of available solutions or science. It’s a lack of will on the part of elected officials and the overwhelming financial influence of developers that have created our current crisis.
Those who attended identified a ways to resolve the issues surrounding clean water. They include increasing public awareness of Florida’s current water quality, a larger commitment to early education on the responsibility for soil and water conservation., and a partnership between public agencies and private schools.
The Jacksonville Business Club agreed to host a Clean Water Working group to coordinate a response. They will gather during an online event on March 19, 2019 to start their work.
