Description

A memorandum from Felix Salvador, Chairman of the St. Johns River Advisory Committee, to Committee members and county commissioners of counties bordering the river. The St. Johns River Advisory Committee was formed under Governor C. Farris Bryant (1914-2002), and reactivated under Governor W. Haydon Burns (1912-1987), with the task of advising state and local agencies on aquatic pollution within the river. In this memo, Salvador stresses the need for an agency that is able to build and oversee sewage treatment plants above the city level. He also urges that a state agency be formed with the task of controlling pollution, thus allowing the state to qualify for Federal grant money.
