Fertilizer pollution stirs debate

Published September 11, 2008 - Star-Banner
The ordinance now proposed in Marion County, which the County Commission requested to come back for a vote in 30 days, would ban fertilizer application in these places:

Within 15 feet of the top of the bank of a drainage retention area, canal, wetland or any other water body

Within 200 feet of a sinkhole or any other karst feature, such as a cave, with an opening at the surface.

Within a half-mile of the ordinary high water line of Silver Springs, the Silver run, Rainbow Springs or the Rainbow River.
