Columbia, Hamilton and Suwannee County Commissioners Holding Public Meeting to Discuss Water Diversion
Wheres The Water?
Our region is already experiencing low water flows on many of our lakes, rivers and springs. Studies show that the Regions water table is already incrementally deteriorating. Water is an essential and limited resource, needed for drinking, farming, mining, and recreation. However, not all of our water goes for our use.
Where is our water going?
In May 2011, the St Johns River Water Management District authorized the Jacksonville Electric Authority (JEA) to extract 155 million gallons of water a day from our water supply and divert it to their customers in the Jacksonville Area for the next 20 years. JEA has other options, but diverting our water has the lowest cost.
