They all hope to save Wakulla Springs

Published August 26, 2006, Tallahassee Democrat
Saving Wakulla Springs from further pollution will require accountability, communication, cooperation and a lot less finger-pointing, participants in a public forum at the Wakulla Springs State Park lodge said Saturday.

About 150 residents, volunteers, government representatives and office seekers gathered to share ideas on how to restore the springs, damaged by nitrogen pollution from sewage and stormwater sources.

"Public ownership of the springshed is the ultimate solution in springs protection," panelist Jim Stevenson said during the opening session. Stevenson is coordinator of the Wakulla Spring Basin Work Group and a former biologist for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
