A drain on common sense

Published August 3, 2008 - Orange Sentinel (Viewpoint Letters)
Please consider the reasons we oppose issuing any kind of permit that would allow the drawing down of water from our precious Floridan Aquifer.

*The No. 1 reason is that the proposed use is not consistent with the public's interest.

*Due to the drastically low levels of groundwater, including Lake Okeechobee and Lake Lanier in Georgia, there is no doubt that water has become a precious commodity, and allowing any company to take 177 million gallons of water from our aquifer doesn't make sense.
