JU to study impact of drawing water from St. Johns

Published February 28, 2008
The City of Jacksonville has commissioned Jacksonville University to conduct a $100,000 study on the environmental impact of a plan to remove up to 262 million gallons of water from the St. Johns and Ocklawaha rivers.

The City Council voted 16-1 to challenge Seminole County's application to remove up to 5.5 million gallons per day, joining St. Johns County and the St. Johns Riverkeeper.
