Volusia offers to drop water lawsuit

Published Sep 15, 2009 - The Beacon Online
At a recent meeting, County Council members expressed consternation over a letter sent by the Legal Department to the St. Johns River Water Management District. The letter was mailed Aug. 27 with the support of the county administration, before the County Council had seen or even heard of it.

Volusia County filed suit with the Florida Division of Administrative Hearings, seeking to force the Water Management District to back off its demands for pricey water projects. The county wants the district to accept its proposals for managing and conserving water supplies, instead. The administrative hearing in the case was set to begin Oct. 13 in DeLand.
