WWALS Watershed Coalition advocates for conservation and stewardship of the Withlacoochee, Willacoochee, Alapaha, Little, Santa Fe, and Suwannee River watersheds in south Georgia and north Florida through education, awareness, environmental monitoring, and citizen activities.
Thus, we are in opposition to the construction of the
proposed pipeline in Dougherty County and request that FERC give
serious consideration and analysis to alternative routes (1) that
avoid unstable geologic areas such as karst and sink-hole prone
areas, (2) that minimize impacts to drinking water and agricultural
water supplies, (3) that minimize impacts to wildlife habitat,
forest, wetlands, streams and rivers and (4) that do not compromise
socio-economic and cultural issues.
