DeLand, county, New Smyrna file objections over water plant on Lower Ocklawaha

The bigger picture, Elkind said, is the Water Management District requiring all West Volusia cities to seek alternative water sources, not just to accommodate future growth, but to provide current needs.

One reason is to protect the water flow at Blue Spring, but recent studies show rainfall has much more effect on those levels than do wells drilled into the aquifer, Elkind said. Studies commissioned by DeLand, the county, Deltona and Orange City are challenging the district's studies.
