water drop
On this week's Florida Matters, we look at the state's most precious resource - water. You'd think being in one of the wettest regions this side of Seattle means we don't have to worry about running out of water. But just look to our north: The drought afflicting the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint river system has heightened the 18-year fight among Florida, Georgia and Alabama over the water they share. Is this the future of our state as we continue to grow and add a city the size of Tampa every few years? We talk with Cynthia Barnett, who's written a book on the future of water battles in the East, and Steve Seibert, head of the Century Commission for a Sustainable Florida, which is planning a series of "water summit" this fall.
