Gainesville, FL, USA
Among the most important issues facing Florida today is the threatened condition of state waters and waterways. Polluted rivers, diminished lakes, and disappearing springs place our quality of life and economic vitality at risk. On Tuesday, Nov. 17 at 6 p.m., in the Pugh Hall Ocora, the University of Florida’s PIE Center and the Bob Graham Center for Public Service hosted a panel discussion which examined the many consequences of over pumping Florida’s aquifers. Panelists discussed the economics of water production, recent attempts to remedy the situation, and potential policy solutions for ensuring sufficient water supplies for decades to come.
