Groundwater Program

Sources of high quality ground water underlie virtually all of Florida. Ninety percent of this state's population relies on these ground water resources for their drinking water. Additionally, over 50% of all other water needs including agricultural, industry, mining, and electric power generation are supplied by ground water resources. Ground water also serves as the source for Florida's many springs and provides a significant input to many of Florida's lakes and rivers.
