The St. Johns River Water Management District maintains data on springs and spring flows for water resource protection and long-term water supply planning. Water level, quality and discharge data obtained from monitoring networks increase scientists’ understanding of the hydrogeologic, climatic and human factors that affect water resources.
How often monitoring is conducted is unique to each spring and is contingent on many factors. In some cases, larger springs on public property may be sampled every few months, while smaller springs on public or private property are not regularly monitored. Historical spring flow data has been collected by the U.S. Geological Survey since 1929 and by the water management district since 1984.
A district staff member is among a team that regularly collects data at area springs.
The monitoring data presented on these web pages is intended to provide general information about springs. The data reflects information compiled in 2010. While the district collects data on a continual basis, these pages are updated every five years.
