Where In Florida Is The Clearest Water

Florida’s springs are environmental wonders, attracting visitors who float and swim in their clear waters or marvel at the manatees who use them as cold-weather refuges.

But in recent years those waters have been clouded by algae growth and the flow of springs reduced. Groundwater pollution and excessive pumping threaten to further diminish springs and the aquifer that supplies most of our drinking water.

On Thursday, Jan. 20, at 6 p.m., join the Gainesville Sun for an online forum on the problems facing springs and what needs to be done to protect them. The panelists will be Stacie Greco of the Alachua County Environmental Protection Department, Robert Knight of the Florida Springs Institute and Lucinda Faulkner Merritt of the Ichetucknee Alliance. Sun opinion editor Nathan Crabbe will be moderating.
