Otter Springs has new owner

Published October 2, 2008 - The Gainesville Sun
The Suwannee River Water Management District became the new owner of Otter Springs in Gilchrist County Wednesday.

The district paid $6.8 million for the 636-acre site which contains two, second-magnitude springs, more than a mile of Suwannee River frontage, a camp ground with 100 RV sites and other recreational facilities including a lodge. The completed sale means that a permit that would have allowed 400,000 gallons of water to be pumped from the springs each day has been eliminated.
