A hydrologist tries to relax

Florida's biggest magnitude springs discharge over 500 million gallons per day.

But how much water is that really?

If you've never seen a Florida spring,
You're really missing out.

One of the issues of hydrology is that there are so many units.

Trying to relate one to the other can be a full time job.

Alternative answer: About 20 Fenways
(filled up to the Green Monster)
per day!
Or you can go to the stadium and relax instead.
