Summary:
For the purpose of this study the area designated "South Florida" is roughly that part of the Florida peninsula south of a line from Charlotte Harbor on the west to Cape Kennedy (Canaveral) on the east coast and includes the Florida Keys. The region has a significant degree of unity. Geologically it is the youngest part of Florida, the last to emerge from the sea. It has less elevation above sea level, poorer natural drainage, seasonal rainfall, and more problems of excess water. More recently the efforts to relieve the pressures generated by excess water have produced problems of water scarcity.
