Florida Gets Federal Grant to Study Sinkhole Activity

The Florida Geological Survey and the state’s emergency department are receiving a $1.08 million federal grant to study sinkhole vulnerability, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has announced. 

The grant, funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Florida Division of Emergency Management, finances a three-year project that will generate a map modeling potential sinkhole activity in Florida’s counties. Hamilton, Columbia and Suwannee counties will be studied during the launch year, with the survey expanding statewide over the following two years.
