Spring cleaning

Wakulla sets a great example

In a unanimous vote, Wakulla County commissioners put new environmental safeguards into place to protect Wakulla Springs, which is not just a local and regional asset, but a state and national treasure whose protection is an obligation of responsible stewardship.

In so doing, Wakulla became the first Florida county to adopt tough spring-protection standards, which Department of Community Affairs Secretary Thaddeus Cohen hailed as "by far the strongest yet adopted by any Florida local government." The new rules require the state's blessing, but given the DCA's enthusiasm, that's probably only a formality.
