It's time to say no to massive withdrawals from the aquifer

Published 7/29/2008 - The Florida Times-Union
...the fate of the St. Johns and its health has always been secondary to development, jobs and money. It's time to say no more.

Instead of recommending yet another withdrawal from the aquifer, the district staff should be reviewing all consumptive use permits.

Are the numerous bottling plants that suck water out of our aquifer really in the public's interest? Does the state really need so many lush, green golf courses?
