Clean water is the cornerstone of our quality of life and our economy here in the Panhandle. Whether it’s surfing, diving, boating, recreational fishing, or the historic tradition of commercial fishing, maintaining clean water is at the heart of each of these endeavors. Surfrider Foundation is to be commended for its continued efforts to educate the public and advocate officials about the importance of clean water so that everyone may continue to use these resources.
