Two recent developments on the river front. First, Mayor Peyton is making waves to save the St. Johns River. City Hall may go to court to challenge a Putnam County paper mill's plan for a 4 mile pipeline into the river, a pipeline of wastewater pollution. This pipeline is a terrible idea. Channel 4 applauds our Mayor for doing everything possible to stop this plan.
And Jaguars owners, Wayne and Delores Weaver, have pledged up to $150,000 to back efforts to protect the river. The couple will donate $1 to the St. Johns Riverkeeper for every $2 dollars the nonprofit river-protection organization raises on its own. Both of these are positive steps to help protect our precious river.
