Pollution plan for springs debated

Published 6/9/07
A Friday morning discussion between commissioners and staff focused on two specific pieces of the long discussed proposal to change the county's land development code. Both would apply to new development in the the county's primary and secondary springs protection zones, areas of high recharge to Silver Springs and Rainbow Springs.

The first part would establish a set percentage of property that has to be in a natural state to recharge the aquifer. The second piece would create more stringent guidelines for stormwater retention areas in these springs protection zones.
