This geologic data was developed by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) - Florida Geological Survey (FGS) to carry out agency responsibilities related to the management, protection, and development of Florida's natural resources. The data in this database was obtained from a variety of sources. Subsidence incident records listed in this database, in many instances, have not been field checked or verified by DEP/FGS professional geologists. Additionally, the locations of many of these subsidence incidents have not been verified.
