It's time for the springs law

Published Sep. 22, 2007 (Opinion)
The state of our springs is not good, despite initial appearances. Unchecked pollution from various sources over the past few decades has caused their quality and clarity to deteriorate, and will continue to do so unless our elected leaders take a proactive approach to protecting them.

Next month, after almost three years of discussion and rewriting, the County Commission will be positioned to do just that, holding public hearings to adopt the springs protection ordinance.

Commissioners, barring any changes, will establish primary and secondary springs protection zones around the springsheds of Rainbow and Silver springs.
