Merits of withdrawal permits for bottled water debated on local TV show

Ed de la Parte, managing partner of de la Parte & Gilbert, participates in debate. The issue was whether water withdrawal permits should be granted to allow private companies to withdraw water from the Florida Aquifer for the purpose of reselling bottled water.

The debate aired September 27, 2009 on Orlando’s WKMG Local 6 “Flashpoint” segment and was hosted by news anchor Lauren Rowe.  The panel also included Dick Batchelor of Dick Batchelor Management Group, Inc., and Peggy Cox of Orange Audubon Society.
