    It doesn't help that the Florida aquifer is getting sucked dry.

    They were talking about 2007 drought year. It was a great year to dive dark water caves.

    They just reveal where the caves are. Unfortunately local administrations are quick to fix it by pouring cement in. Like this one, we were standing on the edge and could hear an echo from the falling waterfall, lights could not see the bottom. Next day it was gone...
