Lake commissioners wisely navigate waters

Published August 1, 2008 - Orange Sentinel
A savvy move by four of the five county commissioners earlier this week put Lake back in charge -- at least temporarily -- of whether Niagara Bottling LLC gets to suck up 177 million gallons a year of precious underground water, bottle it and sell it.

Commissioners decided Wednesday to file a petition with an administrative law judge to stop the St. Johns River Water Management District from issuing the permit. Result: California-based Niagara is dead in the water (so to speak) for at least six months and more likely a year.
