Get a clue. Groveland wanted the money. the ENTICED Niagara in then acted HORRIBLY. This is a situation of Groveland's making. AND lying about environmental damage on top of it is the worst. All these people are mad and FOR WHAT? So someone can get elected? So the City manager and the utility director can cover their butts? So the City Council can act like, "who me"? BLAH!

Lets boycott all water abusers. Don’t buy plants or trees. Don’t play golf and don’t drink bottled water. We'll show them.
so you think trees and plants are water abusers ? If you wanta pay money to hit a white ball around go ahead, oh and you can use what money you have left over to buy some bottled water. Just save some cash to pay your share of the water pipeline.... And don't forget to leave all your lights on overnight and use as much electricity as possible...

I still am amazed how a company can get a permit (during several years of drought conditions) and be able to drain millions of gallons of water from the main source of this areas water supply and force home owners to be put on watering restrictions for their lawns. Now Niagara bottling has got the okay to drain another 1.5 million gallons a week to supposedly help the misfortune that occurred in New Jersey and New York. This is insane! The very next day Groveland was put on emergency water conditions and is only allowed to water their lawns one day a week! Someone and some people are obviously getting paid to look the other way or the people on these committees are so ignorant that they could allow this nonsense to even be considered. Any young child could understand what a bad idea this is, so how could our elected officials even consider such a ridiculous proposition?
