Niagara bottling asked to justify request to double usage?

The president, members of congress, governors, and mayors are hired into office to serve, we the people.

Then why is it the other forms of government charged to serve, we the people, are hired by others without our permission to lord over us, instead of serving, we the people?

Who are our biggest users of water?

Niagara is one of seven bottled water operations permitted in the 18-county St. Johns River Water Management District.

Those seven bottled water companies are allocated a combined total of 2 million gallons a day from the Floridan aquifer, less than three-tenth’s of 1 percent of the water used in the district on a daily basis, according to district officials

We the people want to know what this company (Niagara) does to justify stealing more of our water?

Besides taking our precious water and selling it in other state and embarrassingly, also selling it back to we the people.

This is water that the company is getting for just about free!

Maybe we the people can band together and do the same requested justification, or maybe it would be better to band together and fire your boss St Johns River Water management Town Fathers?

It is time, as a matter of fact, it is way past the time for the St Johns River Water management Town Fathers and who it is that hire them to,


On December 2013 please do the right thing and stop Niagara from stealing any water at all, fold up and go back and steal water from their own state of California!

Your only job, St Johns River Water management Town Fathers, is to protect our water, nothing else, this is why you are well paid to do this job, what are you thinking?

The people are running out of water more and more each year and yet you bully us into conserving while you allow your pet bottle watering companies to take more and more of our water.


Wonder just what it is that they do for you that we the people must also do?

To drink or not to drink that is the question?

Residents ignored as Niagara Bottling asks for more water

October 6, 2013|Lauren Ritchie, COMMENTARY

Drop by drop, Central Florida is turning into the Wild West of water, and Niagara Bottling is staking its claim with a recent request to nearly double the amount of water it sucks from beneath Lake County.

Lake residents lost a bitter fight in 2011 to the California bottlers allowed to pump up to 177 million gallons of water a year from their Groveland operation, put it in little bottles and make a fortune selling a precious natural resource that the rest of us are forced to conserve

Also while we are at it why did it take 12 days before I could read about this in my newspaper and hear anything about it through our news media?

Niagara bottling ask the St Johns River Water Management to double usage, again.


As one can see from the map it is being sucked dry by 5 states and hundreds of bottle water, soda and beer companies plus golf courses by the thousands, to say nothing about the greedy people.
