Battle over the St. Johns isn’t the only water war

Published May 5, 2009 - The West Volusia Beacon
This time, it is Niagara Bottling Inc.’s request to pull just under 500,000 gallons of water a day from the aquifer at Groveland, in Lake County. The water will fill single-serving bottles manufactured at the plant for shipment elsewhere.

The heart of the argument is: When the district is putting tougher restrictions on municipal use of aquifer water by residents, should a commercial concern be allowed to draw out a half-million gallons a day to ship out of state?
