Land managers begin work on Silver Springs' basin plan

The group will spend the next few months crafting what's known as the Basin Management Action Plan, or BMAP.

The BMAP will be the vehicle through which Marion County, joined by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, will try to curtail the flushing of nitrates into the springs.

The DEP has designated Silver Springs as impaired, with a nitrate level that is triple the maximum pollution threshold set by the agency.
