"Florida has plenty of sunshine, plenty of water.., and plenty of
people...putting severe stress on its delicately balanced hydrologic
system"

Buddy Blane, 1983


"Florida has an adequate source of water for all its needs--now and in
the future--as long as technology and conservation keep pace with our
growing demand. The problems associated with our water
resources arise from the mismatching of mans' needs to the available
supply. Therefore, problems of Florida water resources for the most
part, are not from lack of water but from not having the water arrive
at the place at the time it is needed, although flooding, pollution,
contamination, and heavy mineralization are locally troublesome."

Florida Geological Survey "Your Water Resources" Water Leaflet
Number 1, Tallahassee, Florida 1963


"But the people kept coming, and to new subdivisions kept springing
up; roads kept filling up with cars, rivers kept filling up with
chemicals, sewers kept filling up with what sewers fill up with, new
schools kept popping up in the suburbs as downtown grew old, and
town and country kept bickering over control of underground water
supplies. There is no sign of abatement."

Neil Skene, Tallahassee Report, Florida Trend Magazine,
January 1983
