Protection Zone proposed to safeguard Wakulla Springs, but some Woodville residents wary of development

Published May 27, 2008
Now, efforts to protect Wakulla Springs by limiting septic-tank effluents could make sewer service a reality.

The Tallahassee-Leon County Planning Department is proposing a Primary Springs Protection Zone, extending from south of Orange Avenue to the Wakulla County line, that would give residential developers incentives to pay for sewer installation.

Developers would be allowed to build more units per acre in Woodville once sewer is available. For areas where sewer isn't available, the proposal calls for strengthening septic-tank regulations.
