County considers sewer and water for Indian Springs

Published July 20, 2015
Jackson County Commissioners learned Monday that they’ll be able to add a $500,000 special legislative appropriation to the bottom line for fiscal year 2015-16, and the money is for a specific proposed project that could help protect Jackson Blue Spring and Merritt’s Mill Pond.

The spring is part and parcel of the pond. Water from the spring boils into the pond. That receiving body discharges into Spring Creek. The creek discharges into the Chipla River. That river discharges into the larger Apalachicola River, which flows to the Apalachicola Bay and affects Franklin County's environmentally sensitive oyster industry.
