It doesn't matter what you call them, they still stink!

Have you heard that the South Florida Water Management District is now calling "Deep Injection Wells" something new?  It is almost too ridiculous to believe, but the new name is "Emergency Estuary Protection Wells."

Shakespeare wrote:  
"A rose by any other name would smell as sweet."  In this case it is the reverse; call them what you will, they still stink. 

It would be better to call them Parched Everglades Wells (PEW).

Other more accurate names are:

Deep Everglades Destroyers (DED)

Dehydrated Everglades Features (DEFEAT)

Everglades Extermination Wells (EEW)

It doesn't matter what Rick Scott's SFWMD Governing Board calls Deep Injection Wells, these Water Wasting Wells (WWW) will not protect our estuaries.  Everglades restoration is the answer, sending clean water south is the answer, and wasting precious freshwater is not!
