Rod and Gun Action Request

The Rod and Gun supports local conservation efforts to protect our waters and fish populations and we are asking members of the Rod and Gun Club to attend the following meeting: 

The FPL Proposed Revised permit with the FDEP. A public meeting on this issue has been set for May 7th, 2019 at the Marriot Courtyard located at 2905 NE 9th Street, Homestead, Florida from 3:30 PM to 6:30 PM. 

We need for you to join ORCA, FKAA and Monroe County in opposing the Florida Department of Environmental Protection draft revised permit.  If the FPL proposed changes to this permit are approved, the current polluted water leakage from the cooling canals into the aquifer, bay and Card Sound will continue and will no longer be a violation of the Clean Water Act.  The existing FPL Turkey Point NPDES permit does not allow any pollutant discharge into the bay and Card Sound.

Text Bonnie Rippingille Schoedinger to request talking points for both meetings at 305-323-1243 or you can obtain them at the meeting.

We need your assistance.
