"A 2012 study conducted at the University of Florida rated water
availability and vulnerability for 225 urban areas nationwide, based on
available fresh water per person. Miami ranks near the bottom of the
list for water availability, and scores high on vulnerability.
many other analysis, this study incorporated both local rainfall and
the availability of stored and imported water – what the authors called 'hydraulic' sources. These sources include man-made reservoirs and

The study also accounted for natural variability in rainfall and water
