Protecting the springs

Published June 1, 2009
On Tuesday, the County Commission will take up the springs protection ordinance, which was first proposed more than four years ago, nearly died along the way amid complaints from developers, and has now returned as a possible counterargument to heightened state oversight of development near major springs.

The concept of reversing the decades-old decline in the health of Silver and Rainbow springs - respectively the first and fourth-largest non-tidal springs in Florida - first popped up on the commission's radar in March 2005.
