Words of Wisdom from our neighbors to the south. And they are correct. For instance in the Florida panhandle several chemical plants, including a former Monsanto facility, are allowed to inject millions of gallons of hazardous waste into the Floridan aquifer every DAY, rendering it unusable today or ever for drinking water. That means that the four western counties of the FL panhandle must rely on a shallow sand and gravel aquifer which is only replenished by rainwater. Hmmmm . . . how short sighted to give away our water supplies to huge wealthy corporations.Message from Mexico
