Dann and Adam,

I had identified that I wanted to post the final reports prior to Friday for you to have one last look at the sections.  I am a bit behind on where I wanted to be and I won't have the documents complete until tomorrow and will be posting them then.  I have incorporated all of your comments/edits you have made on all of the sections individually.  If you find any issues with the reports posted tomorrow, I can update them early next week to make sure the changes get to the District.  Thanks. 

Steve

Just posting that we had an issue of our internet down all day today in our Gainesville Office where we are preparing the final reports.  My technical editor has not been able to access my files remotely to input my final edits.  We are hoping the internet will be back up this weekend and we will then finalize the reports and post before Monday am.  Sorry for the delay.

Gentlemen,

If you haven't already read the 2009 MODERNIZING WATER LAW: THE EXAMPLE OF FLORIDA by Christine A. Klein, Mary Jane Angelo, and Richard Hamann I suggest you do so. It is available for download online. This legal opinion document questions the legality of Florida's ongoing policy of allowing universal 15% anthropogenic degradation of all Florida waters.

No exception of the 15 % degradation is being made for Outstanding Florida Waters and Outstanding Florida Springs. Bluntly, one size does not fit all.

Perhaps one of you would like to comment on this in your peer review comments. I think your peer review responsibilities go beyond mere editorial tweaks.

Thank you Brad.  I have met Richard Hamann and will read this but as an engineer and scientist and not a lawyer would.

Thanks Adam. I am also an engineer and I have also met and talked with Richard Hamann. I was one of the listed petitioners in a legal challenge questioning the continued degradation of supposedly legally protected Outstanding Florida Waters based on pseudo scientific guesswork. For me, the bottom line is that SWFWMD does not know what they had vs. what they have already lost. There can be no doubt that these OFWs have already been degraded by anthropomorphic activities but on it goes with the blessing of SWFWMD.
