Florida water management districts seek $122 million for springs restoration

Published 1/23/2013 Tampa Bay Tribune
That's 10 times what the state spent on springs last year, and four times what the state budgeted for Everglades restoration.
Now getting rid of septic tanks near springs is one of the main targets of the proposed taxpayer-funded restoration effort. In Citrus County, for instance, county officials say the DEP is already helping pay for removing 500 septic tanks around Kings Bay in hopes of ending the spread of a toxic algae called Lyngbya.
