Group wants utilities out of St. Johns

Published June 22, 2008
For the first time, Florida's governor has been called on to formally intervene in the water war over the St. Johns River.

The Putnam County Environmental Council filed legal challenges late last week, seeking to block water managers from allowing Central Florida utilities to pump from the river.

The group contends the St. Johns River Water Management District failed to meet state law when it urged utilities to tap into the 310-mile waterway.
