Water Management District Staff Recommends Adena Springs Permit be Denied
Published July 16th, 2014
It's a setback for a large and controversial water permit application.
St. Johns Water Management District staff have recommended the Adena Spring's water permit be denied.
Adena Springs, now known as "Sleepy Creek Lands," requested to use more than one million gallons of water per day to run a grass-fed cattle operation.
Water management staffers say the location of the operation and the amount of water could possibly harm Silver Springs.
This is only a recommendation by the staff.
The water management district's board will make a final decision on Sleepy Creek's permit request during a public meeting on August 12th in Palatka.
