They justified their plan in a statement, saying spring water is a “rapidly renewable resource.”.

The Suwannee River Water Management District not only should reject Nestle's application to withdraw water from the Santa Fe River at Ginnie Springs; it should also revisit Nestle's permit to withdraw water from the Withlacoochee River at Madison Blue Spring, John S.
