Wakulla Springs fights nitrate contamination

Published 10/8/08 - The Famuan
Tallahassee residents who get their drinking water from Wakulla Springs can breathe a sigh of relief after local officials have identified the source of unhealthy nitrate deposits in the water.

After a three year cooperative study between the United States Geologists Service and the City of Tallahassee, Hydrologist and USGS member Hal Davis said the deposits are coming from Crawfordville's spray fields, the inflow from the northern part of Leon County and the septic tanks were the major sources of nitrate to the springs.
