Study links septic tanks to algae and weeds in Wakulla Springs

Published September 26, 2008 - Tallahassee Democrat
A recent study has connected septic tanks in the Woodville area to groundwater flowing out at Wakulla Springs, according to a Florida State University researcher.

Earlier this year, researchers injected the tracer chemical sulfur hexafluoride into groundwater at other locations in Woodville and detected it 60 days later at Wakulla Springs, Chanton said. Together, the two tests confirmed the connection between septic tanks in the Woodville area and the springs.
