Sounds like Palatka and the over developed communities need to stop looking for more water and simply ration what they currently have available. There has to be a balance between growth and stewardship of resources. Sometimes "no" is the only reasonable response for the long run.

Florida lawmakers did this to the state. They are so tax dolllar hungry that they didn't concern themselves with the environment only how many taxpayers they could cram into the area. Another case of the people suffering due to poor decision making by our so called leaders. Nothing new here.
