District OKs St. Johns River pumping

Published April 14, 2009 - Ocala.com
Despite pleas from dozens of people opposed to a controversial plan by Seminole County to siphon water from the St. Johns River, a state water board granted its request Monday , leaving many in Marion County fearing their local rivers could be tapped next.

The district's staff said the withdrawal would lower the St. Johns River by only 0.01 inches. The river has an average flow of about 2 billion gallons per day.
