Environmental groups take aim at need for river water

Posted: Saturday, December 1, 2018 12:00 am | Updated: 12:03 am, Sat Dec 1, 2018.

A project that would pull water from the Apalachee River to fill Hard Labor Creek Reservoir continues to face opposition, locally and statewide.

The project would mean building an intake system along the Walton County side of the river, just north of High Shoals. Depending on how high the river is running, it would pull between 30 and 70 percent of the river’s flow per day out of river and into Hard Labor Creek.

    The Apalachee river on Hwy 78 where the land fills are on the left and right sides of the road. The water runoff from these landfills that naturally runs down hill into the river would enter the river and then make it into our drinking source ?
