Bill to protect Florida springs seen as possible threat to existing safeguards

Published Apr 19, 2015
“I don’t expect that anything will emerge from the 2015 legislative session that will materially improve the condition of Florida’s springs,” said Bob Palmer, a retiree who is chairman of a legislative committee for the Florida Springs Council, after the Senate bill (S.B. 918) changed.

The Senate bill’s current version still requires agencies to set minimum limits for water withdrawals, but it ties those to levels that are “significantly harmful” to waterways or the area’s ecology.
