Drawing upon his recent book, Drying Up, the Fresh Water Crisis in Florida, Ocala-based author, journalist, and educator, John M. Dunn will offer a wake-up call and a hard look at Florida's water future. But, the presentation will also present solutions to the water crisis, not just problems. Drainage projects, runaway sprawl, urbanization, pollution, failing infrastructure, toxic algal blooms, sea level rise, and unsustainable groundwater pumping are all taking a toll. Based on information gathered from more than one hundred interviews and years of research, John reports that many scientists fear there will not be enough water for humans and the natural world, if business as usual prevails. With millions of new residents on the way, Florida’s problems will escalate dramatically. In February, 2020, Dunn's book, Drying Up. The Fresh Water Crisis in Florida was selected as winner of the Florida Historical Society's Stetson Kennedy Award for writing about Florida's natural environment. The book also, has won the Bronze Medal in the 2019 Florida Book Awards, Florida Nonfiction category.
