Move made to block company from selling water from acquifer

Published August 11, 2008 - Orange Sentinel
Lake County commissioners and Groveland CIty Council filed a joint petition today to stop a controversial water-use permit for Niagara Bottling, which wants to pump, bottle and sell water from the Floridan acquifer.

The joint challenge requires the District to notify the Florida Division of Administrative Hearings which will then appoint a judge to weigh arguments for and against Niagara's permit. The judge would make a recommendation to the District's governing board, which would have the final say on the bottler's permit.
