Important County Commission meeting Tuesday re: John’s Island pipeline under the Lagoon

NEWS RELEASE

The Indian River County Board of County Commissioners will hear the request by John’s Island Water Management (JIWM) to construct an effluent pipeline under the Indian River Lagoon this Tuesday, April 23, 2019, under Agenda Item 12.G. The Board of County Commissioners meets at 1801 27th St., Bldg. A, Vero Beach, Florida.

CWC (Clean Water Coalition) has studied this proposal very carefully, and believes this project involves substantial risks to the environment while  low-risk alternatives are available that have not been seriously considered.

John’s Island advocates of the pipeline – who are the primary beneficiaries – hired a PR firm and plan to attend the meeting in force. If you plan to attend, it is recommended that you arrive before 8:30 a.m. to secure a seat.

The CWC is an independent, unifying voice to protect and restore the surface and ground waters of Indian River County; connecting and coordinating with community partners to maximize effort toward this shared vision. We envision complete restoration of healthy surface waters and an ecosystem teeming with diverse fish and wildlife: a place where we can take our families to swim, fish, and recreate without fear. We envision a plentiful supply of clean and safe drinking water for current and future generations.

The Clean Water Coalition of Indian River County, Inc. is a Florida Not-for-Profit Corporation designated by IRS as as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
