Contact the Governor and Your Legislators

Contact Governor DeSantis and your State Legislator - tell them we need their leadership to restore the Ocklawaha as a natural, free-flowing River!

Share that “On the recent SJRWMD survey, people were asked “What would you like to see happen with the Rodman Reservoir and Kirkpatrick Dam moving forward?” Of the 9,793 answering this question, 86.5% of people supported restoration of the Ocklawaha River.” Responses in Marion and Putnam Counties and beyond were overwhelming pro-restoration. In contrast, only 582 total respondents were clearly in favor of retaining the dam and reservoir.”

In a few sentences tell them why you think it is important to breach the Rodman/Kirkpatrick Dam to create a free-flowing Ocklawaha reconnecting the St. Johns and Ocklawaha rivers and Silver Springs.

End with “ Please support legislation this session to complete partial restoration of the Ocklawaha River  with priority environmentally-appropriate recreation infrastructure, and provide an economic package to Putnam County.”
