Couple of items I have questions about. Such as when will cedar Creek, and burnt mill Creek, as well as all the various waterways, tributaries wetlands and ditches, etc be cleared up from debris from the hurricane Michael as well as the trees that drowned due to high water levels? People in northern Bay county have lakes instead of a pond. People are losing their homes and their lands in both Bay and Washington county. When will these issues be done. It’s is approaching four years now, that’s too long for the government to get the funding needed for the DEP to finish cleaning up all the waterways. The clogged waterways are also having devastating impact for people in southern Washington county. Hurricane season is here. We need the counties to act now. Also, I understand that there are many factors that are at fault for the high aquifer, but, it wouldn’t be as much of an issue if the creeks we’re cleared allowing the excess water to flow freely out to the bay and deer point lake. The thousands of acres clear cut by northwest water management, and they are still currently cutting more forests. And there is also an issue that the FDOT caused by improperly filling a sinkhole which at a depth of 80 feet was the underground river system that by then forcing grout into the limestone aquifer they blocked a vital vein of the underground river system. Also, they mined for white sand that in part also caused damage to the limestone layer that is an integral part of the underground river system. So I am pleading to everyone, with the hope that someone who reads this will help. I have contacted every agency, every local government, they say they are aware of the issue, and that’s all they do, absolutely nothing. They tell lies, such as the Washington county officials said they would keep parts of the pumping station operational if needed, that was a lie, as they removed it. So, please help us. 850 Strong FDOT Northwest Florida Bay County, Florida Emergency Services Chipley Bugle VISIT FLORIDA Governor Ron DeSantis Emergency Management, Washington County, Florida Washington County FL.
