Niagara Bottling wins permit in bottled-water battle

Published September 26, 2009 - Orange Sentinel
Niagara Bottling won a two-year war for water Friday when a water-agency official discounted objections by Lake County and Groveland and granted the California-based bottler permission to pump nearly 500,000 gallons daily from the Floridan Aquifer.

For two years, critics have argued that giving Niagara a permit to tap the aquifer clashes with the district's crusade to tighten watering restrictions and direct communities to seek out alternative water sources.
