Abstract : It is impossible to think of Florida without envisioning water. Because of its 1,609km (1,000 miles) of coastline, many inland water bodies, and extensive wetlands, the State possesses an abundance of water resources. This has not led to a lack of water management. In fact, a complex water management system has evolved in the State. This system is a reflection of the multitude of factors being considered in planning for Florida's water future. The purpose of this series is to point out the opportunities in instream flow management that currently exist under State law, so that planners and managers can anticipate development, plan appropriate programs, and evaluate the costs and benefits of certain courses of action.
