Members of the Florida Water Management Board are pleading with the Governor, Rick Scott to refund the projects in the state to preserve water usage.
Rick Scott came into politics with an eye on Washington, DC. Using his millions of dollars, after being the CEO of HCA hospitals, that were judged by the Feds for Medicare fraud, to get a position as governor.
He had no "feel" for the state or its needs. He cut back on the educational projects, the medical programs, work programs and then he hit the environment.
Fl. has aquifers that feed into the springs and supply the water to the rivers and the drainage to the ocean and the gulf. Those aquifers are being blocked with trash and old cars dumped into the holes in the woods.
The massive construction of new homes, with an overabundance of present supply drains the aquifer causing sink holes to appear all over the state.
When, the severe freeze hits the growing fields of the strawberries in the winter months, the water sprayers try to save the crop, as they are turned on. The nearby lands start to open up with sink holes taking anything down in the pathway. The water is draining and the phosphate base is cracking.
Governors have sold off water supplies in Fl for the profits, but the state is hurting and will eventually die off from what it once was. The governor needs to go to "school" and learn about what makes the State special before it is too late.
