SIGNIFICANT ECONOMIC

CONTRIBUTION OF SPRINGS

 

Thousands of people use our springs and rivers for swimming, boating, floating, diving and fishing. Springs are also essential to the flows of the Santa Fe, Ichetucknee, Withlacoochee, and Suwannee Rivers. Members of the communities surrounding the springs want to more fully understand the significant contribution of the springs.

 

With the help of the Alachua County Environmental Protection Department, the Florida Springs Protection Tag Grant and contributions from the Save Our Suwannee members, we have asked economic specialists at the University of Florida to perform a study to quantify the economic contribution of springs and river tourism to rural North Florida communities.

Allen W. Hodges, PhD and Tatiana Borisova, PhD, will be presenting their preliminary findings at the next Save Our Suwannee, Inc. public meeting.
