New partnership to help protect Ichetucknee

Published 5/9/2008
A new group called The Ichetucknee Partnership will give one united voice to the many organizations that have been working to protect the Ichetucknee River and springs for years.

Stevenson, who has worked for more than a decade to protect the Ichetucknee, went before the Lake City - Columbia County Chamber of Commerce and "challenged" them to lead a united partnership to protect the Ichetucknee springshed, Johnson said.

A springshed is the surface area that contributes water to a spring. The Ichetucknee Springshed is approximately 384 square miles, with 93 percent of that in Columbia County, Johnson said.
