Ocklawaha River still potential target for water grab

Published September 14, 2008 - Star-Banner
The St. Johns Water Management District will hold a symposium Wednesday and Thursday to discuss potential effects of withdrawing water from the St. Johns and lower Ocklawaha rivers. Attending the meetings will be water agency scientists and environmental experts outside the agency who were asked by the district to review its work and findings.

The meeting, being held in Gainesville, will focus on the water agency’s initial findings on the issue of water withdrawal from the two rivers. Largin said the Management District will hold more meetings in the future as additional information about water withdrawal becomes available.
