Utilities drop plan to siphon water from Ocklawaha

The rush to alternative water sources is due to Florida water authorities telling Central Florida utilities their prime source of water - the underground aquifer - will be off limits by 2013 to additional pumping.

One of the things that utilities wanted to know was minimum flow levels. Minimum flow levels show how low the water in rivers can drop before hurting wildlife that depend on the river.
