Tarmac — It's about water

-A A +A

Tarmac wins, Levy loses. A few years from now, Levy commissioners and planners will be quoting Bill Clinton who, when asked about NAFTA, said, "It sounded like a pretty good deal at the time.”
I came from Manatee County 26 years ago. I saw what happened there. Water wells freely flowed for farmers, no pumps, when I was a kid.
I left in 1984. Water in some wells was 100 feet below the surface. Small jet pumps for homes could not pump.  Manatee County drilled deeper wells with large turbine pumps to supply a county water system. This came as a great expense to the taxpayers.
As a former water well driller who worked Central and West Florida, I collected thousands of well samples for state and federal projects. I am quite familiar with what's down there. Sinkholes are created when large volumes of water are taken from the aquifer. Surface sand caves in to fill these voids.
