Water withdrawal issue reaches Council

Published 11/28/2007
The growing controversy surrounding proposed plans to draw more than 260 million gallons of water a day from the St. Johns River and a tributary, the Ocklawaha River, finally reached the City Council on Tuesday.

One project, at the Taylor Creek Reservoir in Orange and Osceola counties, is already being designed for up to a $215 million plant that will pipe as much as 40 million gallons a day from the St. Johns River into the reservoir for residents of Cocoa Beach, Melbourne, Orlando and other Central Florida cities.
