Bill to strengthen springs protections is stuck in neutral

Published March 30, 2007
In the latest version of Argenziano's bill, she sought to provide some extra protection for four prominent springs - Wakulla Springs, south of Tallahassee; Ichetucknee Springs in Columbia County; Rainbow Springs near Dunnellon; and Blue Spring in Volusia County. Her bill would have required state agencies and water management districts to outline special protection zones around the springs.

The bill directs the Department of Environmental Protection, the water management districts and the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to create a "priority list and schedule'' for outlining spring watersheds and "high vulnerability zones'' for 33 of the state's largest springs.
