Niagara Bottling Defends Plan To Suck 500,000 Gallons Per Day From Aquifer

Published August 6, 2008 - WFTV
For the first time, the Niagara Bottling is publically defending itself against complaints about its new Lake County plant. The company wants to suck 500,000 gallons of water a day out of the aquifer and bottle it up to sell it.

That same aquifer provides water to 99 percent of Central Florida. A Niagara spokesperson told Eyewitness News on Wednesday that water will stay in the state.

Niagara will be the seventh bottled water plant in operation in the St. Johns Water Management District and there is already one other bottled water plant in Lake County. There are four plants in Marion County and one in Nassau County.
