Public Meeting: Drinking Water & Biscayne National Park Threatened
Have you heard? Biscayne National Park is being contaminated
by FPL’s Turkey Point nuclear plant!
***New Fact Sheet [DOWNLOAD]
The Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners will meet to discuss recent data results prepared by the University of Miami (UM) and the Miami-Dade County Department of Environmental Resource Management (DERM) regarding discharges from FPL’s Turkey Point Cooling Canal System into South Florida’s drinking water source and Biscayne National Park. FPL’s water-intensive Turkey Point nuclear plant is near Homestead, about 25 miles south of Miami.
The Biscayne Aquifer is a federally designated aquifer that supplies drinking water for more than 3 million people. Turkey Point is one of Florida’s biggest daily water users and in return leaves behind 600,000 pounds of salt and other contaminants in the Biscayne Aquifer on a daily basis.
Please attend the Commissioner meeting on March 8th and voice your concerns for South Florida’s drinking water and Biscayne National Park.
