Legislature looks at protecting springs with task force

Published April 12, 2008
Bills moving through both chambers of the Legislature would create a task force to study some of Florida's largest springs. It would recommend changes to the way nearby land is used and preserve them.

The Florida Springs Stewardship Task Force would study existing data on major threats to the state's 33 largest springs and develop ways to address those threats. It also would look for ways to fund its recommendations. The task force would make a report to the Legislature by January.
