Board strengthens commitment to water conservationand delays river water withdrawal project funding
As part of adopting a tentative budget today, the St. Johns River Water Management District’s Governing Board strengthened the agency’s commitment to water conservation and delayed funding allocations for construction of river water withdrawal projects until the completion of environmental protection studies on the St. Johns and Ocklawaha rivers.

“The Board and staff have received the message from the public that increased water conservation efforts need to occur as we further explore the development of alternative water supply sources,” said Board Chairwoman Susan N. Hughes of Ponte Vedra. “We also feel it is prudent to complete the various environmental studies that are under way on the St. Johns and Ocklawaha rivers, as well as the preliminary design studies on proposed projects before additional construction funding is allocated.”

The Board today approved a tentative $284.48 million budget with a 0.4158 millage rate for the 2009–2010 fiscal year that begins Oct. 1. Two public hearings will be held prior to final budget adoption in September.
