NORTH PORT — Water-use projections for the next decade show that the city will not need to dip into the Peace River/Manasota Regional Water Supply Authority’s reserves and will instead have water available for redistribution should other members of the authority need it.
According to North Port Utilities Director Cindi Mick, previous projections called for having enough water on-hand to supply a rapidly growing population, but as those numbers have tapered off in recent years, the city now finds itself with more water than it needs. The city will not have to ask the authority to expand their regional system, she said, and for at least the next decade will have enough water once the city’s new reverse-osmosis plant comes online.
