Mount Dora dives into Lake County's water war

Published August 8, 2008 - Orange Sentinel
City leaders not only oppose a California-based company's request to withdraw millions of gallons of water a year from the Floridan Aquifer near Groveland, they also want to prohibit other businesses from trying to do the same in Mount Dora.

Mount Dora is the latest municipality to join Lake County's efforts to block Niagara Bottling Co. from obtaining a permit from the St. Johns River Water Management District to draw 177 million gallons of water a year from the aquifer.
