directed at developing a central sewage collection and treatment system for the residents.
While some land conversion may be required, the subject properties are considerably less
costly than the area adjacent to the road. Table 2 illustrates a cost comparison of the
conventional approach verses the mitigation alternative. There is clearly a net
improvement in the quality of water entering the lagoon, a social need is met, and the
political acceptance of the alternative to the conventional approach has a greater chance of
success than the more traditional methods.

SUMMARY
It is time to re-examine many of today's water management taboos. We must begin to
manage our dwindling natural resources with a fresh and innovative approach which
recognizes realistic economic limitations as well as technological opportunities. Solutions
to increasingly complex resource management problems must, as always, include a clear
and direct benefit to the public. But just as costly solutions must prove beneficial, they
must also be reasonable and implementable. Florida's water resources, as the very
institution of water management itself, have never been under such intense pressure. To
responsibly and effectively address the challenges which confront us, Florida's water
managers must be allowed to "think outside the box."
