Use this site to explore, learn, discuss, and share information about Florida's most important and fragile natural resource - groundwater! Once you've spent some time on our website, take our survey about karst groundwater and pledge to protect and conserve this valuable resource.
Ever wonder what's under your feet in Florida?
Everyone in Florida lives on a distinctive landscape known as karst. Karst refers to an interconnected landscape that stores necessary freshwater resources. Karst forms when slightly acidic water slowly dissolves soluble rock to create a network of sinkholes, springs, caves, and aquifers - like the Floridan aquifer!
Take the Under Your Feet: Karst Groundwater pledge to commit to doing your part to protect Florida's valuable water resources. Pledge to make a difference in your karst landscape to win free prizes!
