Summary:
The Biscayne Aquifer is an underground pool of water that provides virtually all the water used by people and businesses in the area. By nature, it's clean, fresh water. Thousands of public and private wells are drilled into the aquifer and those wells supply water to about three million people in Dade, Broward, southern Palm Beach and eastern Monroe Counties. But even though it's underground, the water is close to the surface and can easily get polluted.
