Lake may shift funds to fight Niagara

Published August 16, 2008 - The Daily Commercial
Lake County could move $500,000 from reserve funds to a special line item to challenge Niagara Bottling's request to the St. Johns River Water Management District for a groundwater permit.

County officials have estimated the suit could cost from $200,000 to $500,000, with a large part of that going to pay expert witnesses. A spokeswoman from Niagara has written previously in an e-mail message the company plans to "vigorously defend the permit through every legal means" and that the county has underestimated the cost of the challenge.
