State outlines plan to protect Silver Springs

Published 7/23/2015
BMAP stands for Basin Management Action Plan, and there are several around the state that aim to improve the quality of water in the Floridan Aquifer.

This particular BMAP covers the roughly 30 springs in the Silver Springs system, Mammoth Springs and the Silver River.

The specific purpose of this BMAP is to control the nitrate levels of the water that reaches the aquifer.

The BMAP includes 130 projects, and the public can comment on those until Aug. 19 by going to the DEP’s website: http://www.dep.state.fl.us/water/watersheds/bmap.htm
