Chiefland out of water deal

-A A +A
By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

The Nature Coast Regional Water Authority is taking shape and it looks as if Chiefland will get its wish to not participate and to not lose any water from the city’s new wellhead site.

The discussion group forming the regional water authority hammered out the wording of its governing utility agreement with participation by Dixie and Gilchrist counties and the cities of Fanning Springs, Trenton, Cross City and Bell.

Chiefland had participated for several months in the discussions of supplying water to Trenton, Fanning Springs and Old Town. The talks started to break down when the Suwannee River Water Management District proposed forming the regional water authority and using the well that Chiefland and the District put in on 155 acres of land. The Chiefland Commission has not wanted to lose control of the wellhead or water rates to city residents.

Since then the city had approached the district about exercising its option to purchase 33 acres of the site and the District has approved the purchase. But the District board has refused to sell the remaining 122 acres to the city.
