Volusia County joins rush to use river for water

Published May 2, 2009 - The West Volusia Beacon
Feeling pressure from state agencies, the Volusia County Council has tentatively committed to join Seminole County in tapping the St. Johns River as a future water source.

The aquifers, especially Volusia County's sole-source aquifer, are not enough to meet the demands of a growing region in the decades to come, according to civic leaders and Water Management District planners. Yankee Lake is seeking partners who want some of the treated river water piped to them, rather than building their own alternative-water plants.
