    Global Warming – Climate change – whatever you want to call it –some places will get abnormally heavy rains and some will get very little. Same goes for the heat and cold. In north central Florida rain has been scares for a long time. Now we have salt water intrusion and many wells are going dry. How ironic that Nestle Water (bottled water from Levy County) will be donating free bottled water. Isn’t that nice of them to give us a few bottles of water from the millions of gallons they have pumped out of our aquifer.

    Officials in Cedar Key are asking residents for the time being not to drink water from the tap in the city of Cedar Key.
    The Cedar Key Water and Sewer District announced Tuesday that, due to the drought and low groundwater levels that are plaguing North Central Florida, the Cedar Key district’s wellfield is suffering from salt-water intrusion.

    Nestle Water has volunteered to deliver fresh drinking water to the residents of Cedar Key. The first shipment of water arrived today at approximately 2:30 and is currently being distributed to city residents
