Task force on springs likely to receive funding

Published 5/2/07
As Florida's springs continue to face threats from encroaching development and other pollution sources, state lawmakers are poised to back a study on the springs' predicament.

The House has unanimously backed a bill (HB 299) that would create a nine-member Florida Springs Stewardship Task Force that will collect data on the state's 33 largest springs, which each release about 65 million gallons of water a day. The Senate is expected to pass the legislation before the end of the week.
