Public Information Meeting Concerning Water Wells in Bay County
September 24, 2010
A public information meeting will be held by Washington County at the Vernon City Council Chamber at 6 PM on Thursday, October 14. This meeting will be held to inform the public of the issues relating to Washington County’s request of Northwest Florida Water Management District to stop the permitting of ten water wells in Bay County.
These wells are just south of Washington County’s southern boundary, and the proposed water that would be drawn from these wells originates from the Floridan and surfical aquifers that traverse Washington County.
Bay County has applied for the permits for these wells, and have provided supporting documentation that the use of these wells will not adversely impact Washington County. Washington County would like to take this opportunity to share its concerns, as well as, hear those of the public and other interested parties.
For more information, contact Michael J. DeRuntz, CFM, Senior Planner for Washington County, Florida at 850-415-5093 or email@example.com.
