Watershed idea: Switch to Bahia lawns

Published August 10, 2008 - St. Petersburg Times
I want to talk about minimum flows and levels, a bit of government jargon that describes the state's main tool for protecting our rivers and lakes.

These are standards that identify the smallest amount of water needed to sustain the health of freshwater bodies of water.

And, because rivers and lakes in Florida depend either directly or indirectly on groundwater, water management districts are supposed to limit further pumping once the unwanted minimums are reached.
