Seminole County launches Web site

Published June 18, 2008
The Seminole County government is pleased to announce the launch of a new Web site featuring the proposed Yankee Lake Project, located along the St. Johns River. The Web site can be accessed at http://www.sharedwaterworks.com and was developed to provide accurate and up-to-date information about the project to the citizens of Central and Northeast Florida.

The Yankee Lake Project proposes to use a small amount of water from the St. Johns River as an alternative water supply for Seminole County. The project will use about one-quarter of one percent of the flow in the St. Johns River. Initially, this water will support Seminole County's reclaimed water irrigation system, but it will eventually meet the future potable water needs of its customers. In fact, once fully implemented, about 80 percent of the water will be used for drinking water.
