Link to page United States
There is no link on this page to the page United States. This seems bizarre given that it's about a region of that country. I tried adding a link to the US page but it was reverted. I suggest that it be re-added. Chris Martin (talk) 14:21, 19 September 2013 (UTC)
Proposal to add section "Water" to Florida
Add section about water in Florida.
Florida has five (5) water management districts. These are (North to South):http://floridaswater.com/maps.html
- Northwest Florida WMD http://www.nwfwmd.state.fl.us/
- Suwannee River WMD http://www.srwmd.state.fl.us/
- Saint Johns WMD http://floridaswater.com/
- Southwest Florida WMD http://www.swfwmd.state.fl.us/
- South Florida WMD http://www.sfwmd.gov/portal/page/portal/sfwmdmain/home%20page
Central Frorida, the St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD) is proactively addressing the water supply needs in the northeast region of Florida, which includes several counties from Jacksonville to Vero Beach. SJRWMD manages water resources to ensure their continued availability while maximizing both environmental and economic benefits. http://floridaswater.com/technicalreports/pdfs/SP/SJ2004-SP7.pdf — Preceding unsigned comment added by Justahguyinflorida (talk • contribs) 20:32, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

A well-intentioned remark explains that a lot of Catholics are immigrant Hispanics. Okay. But should this be projected to include other religions as well? "Jewish people in South Florida are mainly retirees from New York City." "Protestants are largely Baptist, descendants of redneck Georgians...." :) Few Native Americans left. There's an "explanation" for everything, when you come right down to it. Somehow, the explanation for Catholics sounds (without intending to, I'm sure) a bit biased. "There wouldn't be so many Catholics if it weren't for these damned illegals!" Student7 (talk) 16:04, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
"The Atlantic beaches that are vital to the state's economy are being washed out to sea due to rising sea levels caused by climate change and the state is running out of accessible offshore sand reserves" This is an untrue statement and the "news" article that is the reference does not mention global warming or climate change. Erosion is also not an environmental issue in South Florida. I have no article to link but as i have made 3 private beaches and have lived here my whole life i can assure you that the natural phenomena of erosion is not a problem and is not caused by global warming or "climate change". If that untrue statement could be removed it would be appreciated. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 03:31, 24 July 2014 (UTC) (Mavalanche)
- The article indeed seems not to mention climate change, so that can be removed as possibly original research. It does talk about erosion, though, and provides credibility to having that in the article. Scarlettail (talk) 04:27, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
Last submitted economic data under the economy section is severely dated. Last GSP figure was from 2010. Florida's economy as of Q2 2014 is $829.3 Million. 2014 Source: http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/compare_state_spending_2014bZ0G ; 2013 Source:http://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/series/FLNGSP 126.96.36.199 (talk) 04:31, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
