Water Woes

Published Oct. 14, 2000|Updated Sep. 28, 2005

The rainy season officially ended Sept. 30, and the drier weather is having the anticipated effect on the Floridan Aquifer. For the first time in weeks, the aquifer level is falling, ensuring regulators will not ease water-use restrictions for quite some time. Shown here are levels to which the aquifer would have to rise to reach the bottom of the normal range. The figures are updated weekly.
