Water resource limitation
To be delivered to: The Florida State House, The Florida State Senate, and Governor Rick Scott
No individual or corporation can withdraw more than 1000 gallons of water per day from underground sources.
Limiting water grabs by private individuals in Florida. At present, the water management boards, appointed by the governor, rule on permit applications to withdraw water from the aquifer. Free water... just resell it and you are rich! The springs are drying up, surprise. lakes and wells are dry. A rich Canadian named Frank Stronach has a ranch called Adena Springs here, and he has an application to pump 13 million gallons per day, the same amount as Ocala. He probably has good intentions, and seems like a nice guy, but we will see if he modifies his application after hearing our protest.
