St. Johns River Water Management District has more questions for Adena Springs Ranch

Posted by Robyn, January 19, 2013

Florida water regulators want more information from Adena Springs Ranch as they continue to review the farm’s request to draw an annual average of 5.3 million gallons of water per day in the Fort McCoy area. One Adena official describes the regulators’ aggressive data gathering as “unprecedented,” and said the tactic should cause other agriculture businesses to be concerned.

The St. Johns River Water Management District’s request for additional information about the 25,000-acre plus project is only the latest in a back-and-forth volley that began in December 2011. St. Johns’ latest request focuses on specifics of potential water withdrawal and how the farm would dispose of animal waste from about 17,000 cows.
