TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - A national conservation group has announced its top ten list of most endangered rivers in America.

Last year, the Apalachicola - Chattahoochee - Flint river system was number one on that list.

It's not even on this year's top ten, but local environmentalists are still pushing for Florida water rights.

Several Florida lawmakers have pushed for more stronger protection of the Apalachicola River and Bay.
