Posted Mon Mar 3 2008: from Naples News Daily (FL):
Collier county wants right to withdraw more aquifer water; district reluctant
"The county wants more fresh water because it is less expensive to treat than brackish water and can be treated with existing water plant capacity, delaying the need to build new plants, county Water Director Paul Mattausch said.... More than half of the county's water supply comes from alternative water supplies, either highly treated reclaimed water from the county's sewage treatment plants or brackish water from deeper underground."
