If they see a big crowd they will worry about Anitere Flores seat (with redistricting she has to contend with pesky green people) and perhaps do some of what was reported in the Miami Herald today in a front page article:
In a notice to FPL officials Monday, the Department of Environmental Protection gave the utility 21 days to provide any information about how the 40-year-old canals have seeped into the Biscayne aquifer over the years and enter negotiations to come up with a clean-up plan. If the two sides fail to agree, the agency may come up with its own measures in 60 days, the notice said.
DEP Water Resource Management Director Frederick Aschauer also warned FPL that a new problem — in March Miami-Dade County detected canal water in Biscayne Bay — may be violating other state laws, for which the utility may be liable for damages.
|This is the largest cooling canal system in the world. Note the size of the plant next to the canals.|
The one thing that makes me happy: The Tallahassee Senate Committee will probably be stuck in Homestead for dinner and lodging. The bad thing: They will be very cranky by the time Citizen Comments come up. Can you imagine 200 people commenting. They might urge you to submit your comments in writing for the record (like any of those will be read). Those comments will be left on a dusty shelf never to be seen again.
