Water policy divides GOP candidates

Interesting facts about water bottlers in the Suwannee River Water Management.

According to the district, eight permits have been issued for water bottling operations but only three are now being used: Seven Springs in Gilchrist County, withdrawing an average of about 326,000 gallons per day; Suntory Water in Levy County, withdrawing 27,000 gallons a day; and Nestle Waters in Madison County, withdrawing 320,000 gallons a day. Pope said he worked to revoke another 13 unused bottling permits for significant amounts of water and establish minimum flow levels guaranteeing aquifers aren't depleted.
