snocone: OOhh, look, new homesites!


For 5-7 years until the sinkhole swallows them too.

Florida is made of a combination of Swiss cheese and dry-rotted sponges. The fact that any building there is still standing is a miracle.

danno_to_infinity: not so sure I'd want that fertilizer infused, algae fest to go directly into any aquifier.  I'd be screaming blue bloody murder if I had a well supplying my drinking water in the area.

/if it gets run off from the typical suburban area, especially a highly maintained one like a HMA property, you can bet your bottom dollar that any water standing at the surface has lots of fertilizer and other *delicious* things in it.


Actually, I would be suspect of ANY water in Florida because of the geology. Odds are pretty good that any aquifer with enough water to serve as a well most likely daylights somewhere nearby

Came here to say this.  If it's not deep enough to have thermal stratification, it's not a lake.
