Wekiwa Springs' survival pits the unpalatable vs. the unthinkable

Published March 26, 2009 - Orlando Sentinel
Along with 55,000 other people who live in the Wekiwa Springs drainage basin, I have a septic tank. Our buried concrete boxes dump nutrient-laced wastewater into the same aquifer that feeds Wekiwa.

I also understand that septic waste is by no means the only threat to Wekiwa. Fertilizer could be just as bad. But the state does nothing about that, even though we could require that only eco-friendly fertilizer be sold in Florida.
