Third proposal surfaces for pumping water for public use from St. Johns River

Published August 11, 2009 - Orlando Sentinel
Already in the works are two separate projects that would tap the river for water near Sanford and in southeast Orange County. Both of those proposals are entangled in legal fights.

Partners in this third and newest venture had hoped Tuesday to persuade state water managers in Palatka to contribute $1.5 million to studies and preliminary design work that would total $5 million over several years and help determine the feasibility of such a large withdrawal.
