Fight escalates as Niagara bottling plant prepares to open

Published July 27, 2008
Lake County, Groveland and Clermont are working to oppose the bottling facility, and they could join forces with other governments to block Niagara's request before the St. Johns River Water Management District to dig wells on the plant site and withdraw up to 177 million gallons of water a year.

"Can anyone expect citizens across Central Florida to take water conservation seriously if the SJRWMD [St. Johns River Water Management District] approves a permit for a private company to pull millions of gallons of water from the aquifer to bottle and sell throughout the country?"
