Lake County Water Alliance has eyes on Withlacoochee

Published Oct. 11, 2007
Lake County and its cities are looking at the possibility of taking water from Lake Rousseau and the Withlacoochee River in Marion County to meet its future water needs

Protect Our Waters at Rousseau, a group of concerned citizens, is inviting the public to attend a meeting at 7 p.m., Oct. 18, at the Dunnellon train depot, off Williams Street (U.S. 41) to discuss the Alliance's plan.

In Lake County, the cities and county governments, through an interlocal agreement, formed the Lake County Water Alliance to collectively look for alternative water sources required by the St. John's District. The Alliance's Water Supply Plan names Lake Rousseau and the Withlacoochee River as possible sources of water for Lake County.
