Will South Florida's Development Tap Run Dry?

An ever-decreasing water supply threatens growth in South Florida's final development frontier.

"Blessed with some of Broward's last shreds of open land, Sunrise has blossomed into Fort Lauderdale's western bookend, with a growing skyline abutting the Everglades.

But strict water limits in South Florida threaten to halt feverish growth in large cities like Sunrise unless officials spend tens of millions of dollars for alternative sources of drinking water.

'It is the 500-pound gorilla in the room,' said Deputy Mayor Roger Wishner. 'We are running out of water. This could affect the quality of life for all residents.'"
