The administrative hearing will span three weeks this month, with a decision not expected until late this year.

Seminole County's attorney went on to stress that the county has spent heavily, nearly $125 million, to recycle treated sewage for lawn irrigation. Much of the spending has resulted from intensive construction required to equip old neighborhoods with new pipes to distribute reclaimed wastewater.

The effort will lessen the county's demand for Floridan Aquifer water by at least 8 percent, de la Parte said.
