I think you would have to contact the county engineers about that. There is not too many places down here that I can think of other than Miami Dade county that is experienceing anything like that. The cause is too many people drinking from the well. The water table drops and the sea water rushes in. Fortunately we have the everglades and lake okedokee to help us with that.
