NAPLES DAILY NEWS: October 27, 2016. Written by Eric Staats.

Caloosahatchee River water quality concerns drew hundreds of people to a daylong summit Wednesday to hear — and often debate — ways to protect one of Southwest Florida’s most important natural assets.

Some 400 people — fishermen, farmers, hoteliers, environmentalists, Realtors — attended the “Save Our Water” event sponsored jointly by The News-Press and the Naples Daily News at the Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort and Spa.

The mood was set early as the event began with attendees standing and calling out in unison the message on the placards they held in the air: “Save Our Water!”
