Protect Outstanding Florida Waters

The Chassahowitzka and Homosassa springs and river were designated as Outstanding Florida Waters (OFWs) in 1993, making their degradation forbidden under Florida state statue. Despite these protections, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) is considering revisions to the minimum flows and levels in these systems that will further degrade these waters.

Please take action belowto tell FDEP that Floridians expect protection for all Outstanding Florida Waters, starting with the Chassahowitzka and Homosassa.
