    quality problem from decades of agricultural chemicals use.

    Another problem is the model the state uses to predict ground water flow. The model assumes water filtering through sand and gravel. The reality is limestone karst.

    A couple of years ago they ran a dye test. The model predicted 100 years to flow a couple of miles. It took 6 months. It would have taken less time in the rainy season.

    Others have simply gotten old. I prefer to think I've been tempered by time.
