Florida's waterways: Journalist takes stock of Bay County

Florida's usage generally exceeds rainfall rate and the demographic is uniquely taxing on the water table for many reasons: 1) Usage increase spikes in the summer months as lawns and golf courses are watered in the hot Florida sun; 2) Retirement community residents -- who comprise 23 percent of Florida's population -- traditionally use more water than more junior dominant demographics and 3) As development continues, more and more drainage ways are disrupted and polluted.
