Water managers reviewing Blue Spring water-flow goals

Published October 09, 2006
After taking another look at long-term conservation goals for Blue Spring, regional water managers have decided to speed up their timeline for increasing the average water flow because the spring is so popular with manatees.

The St. Johns River Water Management District has been trying to set a minimum average flow mark for the spring for 10 years. The targets are required by state law to help water districts review water use requests. The districts are charged with making sure the state's groundwater supplies aren't overused to the point that it causes environmental damage.
