The springs forum was created by concerned citizens to create a venue where government officials, professionals, and the public can discuss the issues and solutions to protecting our local springs. Alachua County Environmental Protection Department coordinates quarterly meetings, which are open to the public, for the working group.

The focus of the meeting will be on septic systems, with Elke Ursin from the FL Department of Health and Roxanne Groover with the Florida Onsite Wastewater Association as speakers.

The meeting agenda is posted at the web link below.

Following a long lunch break, join us at Poe Springs from 2:00 - 4:00 for a field trip with Pete Butt and Tom Morris from Karst Environmental Services. If interested, meet at the Lodge at Poe Springs at 2:00 prepared to walk in the woods for a couple hours (pants, bug spray, close toed shoes, water, etc.). We will see some of the karst features that Pete shared images of during the July meeting! The field trip is part of a springs tag grant administered through the Wildlife Foundation of Florida.
