The Homosassa River Alliance is concerned about the abuse and overuse of our coastal rivers and wetlands, which is why this group was organized. As a feeder to the Homosassa River and then to the Gulf of Mexico, the Halls River is definitely on our radar. We were successful in ending a proposed zoning change on the northwest side of the Halls River bridge via lawsuits five years ago.
Homosassa River Restoration Project (HRRP) is a Florida nonprofit all volunteer organization whose mission is the restoration and preservation of the Homosassa River. Faced with 90% loss of native vegetation and invaded by Lyngbya algae, the projects goal is to substantially increase both water clarity and quality. Removing decades of accumulated muck and replant native eel grass which will help restore and preserve this once beautiful natural resource which is economically vital to our area. Working together with Homosassa citizens, community groups and businesses our river will once again be the pristine body of water deserving of the Outstanding Waterway designation granted by the State of Florida.
