Best of Florida Matters - WUSF 89.7 Spring Membership Campaign
We’re looking back at some of the stories and conversations you make possible every week on Florida Matters. We’ll examine the impact of watering to protect crops during the freeze earlier this year. Experts weigh the benefits and costs of opening the state’s Gulf waters to oil and natural gas drilling. And we explain the EPA’s proposed water-quality standards for Florida -- and why some say the limits are too strict.
