Lake County water officials file petition to protect water flows, levels

Published July 12, 2008
The Lake County Water Authority is taking legal action in its fight to protect the Harris Chain of Lakes from Central Florida's looming water shortage.

It is trying to force the St. Johns River Water Management District to set minimum water levels on the chain before allowing Apopka to draw water from Lake Apopka to meet their needs.

The water-management district wants to allow Apopka to withdraw up to 1.8 billion gallons of water a year from Lake Apopka to use mostly for lawn irrigation in that city.
