It’s October 2015 and the annual influx of northern “snowbirds” is already underway. It’s that time of year again – tourists and second homeowners alike are coming down to Florida for its warm and endearing sunlight, palm trees, beaches, and golf courses.
Florida’s Vanishing Shoreline
Unfortunately, new seasons bring much more to Florida than an influx of visitors from out of state. The changing weather can cause an elevation in water levels, which in turn tends to erode the shorelines of Florida’s lakes, ponds and canals.
Many of these bodies of water are actually located in the very places both snowbirds and natives call home: the gated communities, the condominium complexes, and the golf courses and country clubs.
This erosion of Florida’s shoreline is due to a variety of factors. In addition to the rise in water level due to changing weather, shoreline erosion may be caused by:
- Strong winds that can create waves that pound into water banks
- Storm water runoff that has been improperly drained (or not drained at all)
- Certain species of fish that may burrow into the shoreline
Everyone in Florida, from yearlong to winter residents, feels the effect of shoreline erosion. Lakes and ponds are built in communities and country clubs to raise property value, but each inch of shoreline erosion also erodes this value. In addition, eroding shorelines take significant vegetation with them, and the loss of this plant life destabilizes Florida’s ecology.
