Water wars are here — Riverkeeper, Jacksonville, St. Johns County move to block Seminole County plant

Published 3-13-2008
Water wars have arrived in Central Florida, and the opening salvos have already been fired. The fight is over use of the St. Johns River as an alternative source of water.

The battle is of a legal nature — with the St. Johns Riverkeeper, the City of Jacksonville and St. Johns County filing legal challenges Seminole County's plan to draw water from the river at the Yankee Lake plant.

The three agencies are working to prevent the St. Johns River Water Management District from approving the plant.
