Citizen activists in the Lower Keys fought for a deep well and now they’ve got it. Strictly following the letter of the law as it stands now, a deep well isn’t required. It sure is a good idea though. I’m very critical of the county’s over-spending on the Cudjoe Regional project, but the deep well is a good investment.
This deep well situation is a good example of how effective citizens can be once they commit to advocating for themselves.
