Fanning not a first magnitude springs

-A A +A
By Claude Lewis

At the conclusion of the inaugural Fanning and Manatee Springs Working Group meeting this past February, coordinator Carol Lippincott took a little survey.

She wanted to know from attendees what the most important factors were in regards to the protection of springs and their basins.

Education was the number one answer.

Along those lines, Lippincott had a couple of specialists from the scientific community to school folks about intricacies at the second workshop held Wednesday, May 7, at Fanning Springs City Hall.

Robbie McKinney, environmental scientist for the Suwannee River Water Management District, and Tom Greenhalgh, a geologist from the Florida Geological Survey, filled the minds of those in attendance with some Xs and Os about where the springs stand.

McKinney talked about water quality status and trends, while Greenhalgh informed the gathering of infrastructure.

Greenhalgh opened some eyes with his assumptions about Fanning Springs.

While Fanning is still considered a first-magnitude spring by the book, Greenhalgh believes its status is slipping.
