Groveland won't reconsider pipeline for bottler

Published December 5, 2007
The city will not reconsider a wastewater deal with Niagara Bottling until the California-based company is more certain to open a large manufacturing plant here.

City Council members unanimously voted in October to turn down the deal amid concern that the area's growth already is expected to outpace local water supplies in a few years. For that same reason, council members Monday night opted not to reconsider the wastewater proposal at least until the St. Johns River Water Management District decides whether to grant Niagara a permit to take nearly half a million gallons of fresh water from the ground every year.
