Here is the letter that I am sending:

Silver Springs is now further threatened by a large-scale cattle operation and slaughterhouse in its springshed. Adena Springs Ranch is seeking a permit to withdraw over 13 million gallons of water a day from the aquifer. Please help us stop this permit and protect Silver Springs and our aquifer. You can learn more at

The health of Silver Springs is in serious jeopardy, with dramatic declines in flow and increases in pollution in recent years.

Please protect our waterways. It will be a horrible legacy if you allow our springs to be ruined.

Here are the places that I am sending it:

400 S. Monroe Street
