JEA receives controversial water use permit

Published 5/12/2011
The St. Johns River Water Management District Tuesday night approved a permit that would allow Jacksonville utility JEA to withdraw up to 163 million gallons of groundwater daily in the next 20 years.

Armingeon cited a report conducted by the District itself, which noted that “superficial aquifer levels are predicted to decline” in wetlands, lakes and ponds, in some areas, by up to six inches, due to groundwater pumping.
