It's Crystal Clear: Protect Natural Springs

Published: December 21, 2008 - Tampa Bay Online
A bill introduced a couple of weeks ago by Sen. Lee Constantine of Altamonte Springs, chairman of the Senate Environmental Preservation and Conservation Committee, would protect them for future generations - and accomplish much more.

The bill would require protection zones around Ichetucknee Springs in Columbia County; Rainbow and Silver, both in Marion; and Wakulla County's Wakulla Springs.

It would require officials to identify springs drainage areas vulnerable to pollution. Confusion over jurisdiction shouldn't be an issue because the legislation would allow the zones to cross political boundaries.
