25 Florida utilities will explore water options

Published March 26, 2008
As elected officials and environmentalists across Northeast Florida stew over simmering plans to pull water from the St. Johns River, such projects will be the subject of a meeting in Sanford on Friday.

Some 25 Central Florida utilities are exploring a variety of alternatives to using groundwater to provide drinking water to the growing region, mostly because of dire warnings about dwindling groundwater supplies from the St. Johns River Water Management District.

The meeting will take place from 9 a.m. to 3:30 at the Seminole County Commission Chambers, 1101 E. First. St., Room 1028.
