Florida’ water basin, along with many others in the world, is being rapidly depleted. Much more fresh water is being consumed than is being replaced.

New information gained from NASA satellites shows large groundwater basins are being rapidly depleted by human consumption even though we have scarce and inaccurate data about how much water remains in them, according to two new studies published in June 2015 in Water Resources Research.

This means significant segments of Earth’s population are consuming groundwater without knowing when it might run out.
