Ocklawaha River pipeline plan with possible implications for area is modified

Plans for a 100-mile pipeline to pump water from a river in Marion County has been reduced to include only the counties that the river runs though, a water district official said.

Just last month, local environmental groups were worried the pipeline from the Ocklawaha River would set a precedent for piping water out of rivers all over the state.

The other counties -- Orange, Seminole and Volusia -- may be able to use water from the St. John's River, Fisk said. The Ocklawaha feeds into the St. John's River.
