A WATER ETHIC FOR FLORIDA

You can download the new report from the Collins Center, Our Water. Our Florida, that makes makes the case for a statewide water ethic to protect Florida’s most essential natural resource – water.

Adapted from Mirage: Florida and the Vanishing Water of the Eastern U.S., by Cynthia Barnett, this paper highlights the theme of managing Florida's freshwater and includes some critical guiding principles.

This water ethic for Florida shows how all Floridians, from elected leaders to business owners to individual citizens, can come together to ensure freshwater supply for future generations.

Also, look for Barnett's newest book, Blue Revolution: Unmaking America’s Water Crisis, to be published by Beacon Press in the Fall.
