Florida’s Water
And how we organize it, but can we save them?

Mention the name Florida and people probably instinctively think “the sunshine state.” But is there a state where water is more abundant and more central to how we think of the place? And I’m not talking the Atlantic or Gulf coasts, although you can add those in too. I’m talking about Florida’s 30 major basins, 5 major water management districts, 4 national estuary programs and 3 major aquifer systems.

Florida’s 30 major basins (it might be 29)

5 water management districts

Florida’s 4 National Estuary Programs

Florida’s 3 major aquifer systems

I do not begrudge anyone calling Florida the sunshine state, but as I sit here typing I’m hearing thunder outside the window. Let’s not forget the summer wet season, too!
