Lawmaker proposes springs protection

Published February, 19, 2008
Sen. Burt Saunders, chairman of the Senate Environmental Preservation and Conservation Committee, says he expects to file a bill to establish a pilot program requiring springs protection zones where advanced wastewater treatment and improved septic tanks are required.

The two springs targeted in the bill are Rainbow Springs and Silver Springs, both in Marion County. But the proposal may face opposition from developers and agricultural interests.
