Water district proposes 11-year delay in setting flows for Wakulla Springs

Published 1/14/2013
The Northwest Florida Water Management District is seeking to delay setting minimum flow levels for Wakulla Springs and other springs in the district by 11 years, raising concerns among environmentalists.

This year, a group called Florida Leaders Organized for Water has drafted the Floridan Aquifer Sustainability Act of 2013. 

White Springs Mayor Helen Miller, the group's vice chairman, said the legislation would provide resources to agencies and timetables for setting minimum flows. The group has asked North Central Florida legislators to sponsor the bill but none has to agreed yet, she said.
