State of the springs

Published April 14, 2008
Florida lawmakers are considering assembling a short-term task force to assess the conditions of Florida’s springs.

The bill, with twin versions in the House and Senate, has not reached the floor of either legislative chamber. If eventually approved, the Florida Springs Stewardship Task Force will access existing data on the state’s 33 largest springs and identify ways to curb the nutrient runoff.

“It’s a very short-term task force,” Bersok said, explaining the team’s work probably would begin before the end of summer and end by January 2009.
