Tip of the hydrologic iceberg

Pincrest is more than a simple chain of highland hammocks:

It's also the dividing line between two giant underground aquifers below.


To the east lies the Biscayne Aquifer, the sole source of drinking water for Miami.  And too the west lies the Tamiami Formation, a primary source of drinking water for Naples and Ft Myers coast.

Surface water is only the tip of the swamp's hydrologic iceberg.
