Commissioners scrap Springs Protection plan

Published Nov. 21, 2007
The Marion County Springs Protection plan, meant to stop the flow of pollutants into area springs, was scrapped by county commissioners Tuesday.

In a 4-1 vote, commissioners said the proposed ordinance - which would have made residents in the springs protection zone switch to more efficient, but costlier, septic tanks - was too cumbersome and expensive to homeowners. It would have also limited private well irrigation and forced residents to hook up to county sewer services, if available. It's being sent back to staff to see if anything can be salvaged out of it.
