Another permit filed to take water from Lilly Springs

Published 4/24/09 - High Springs Herald
Blue Springs is located near Rum Island and its owners had been trying for years to build a bottled water plant, but Gilchrist County would never OK the needed permits, which in turn prompted the water district to revoke a permit that would have allowed up to a half a million gallons of water a day to be drawn from the springs.

Shortly after, on Friday, April 16, the water district received an application concerning Lilly Springs, a spring located within two miles of Blue Springs.

The wells would be located both in the upper aquifer and in the deep aquifer to assure that water can be withdrawn during different hydrological conditions, according to the application.
