Osceola County joins fight over St. Johns River water

Published April 10, 2008
Osceola County has joined the water war over the St. Johns River.

A Tallahassee judge this week approved requests by Osceola and its Tohopekaliga Water Authority to enter the fray over pumping water out of the St. Johns.

Osceola County barely borders the 310-mile river, but officials at the county and the Toho utility think a victory by the northeast Florida coalition could jeopardize a separate and much more ambitious proposal by Osceola, Orange, Orlando and others to cooperate in using river water.
