Introduction
Springs are valuable natural and scenic resources that have played an important role in North Florida's history. Native Indians located their villages near springs and many springs were used by 19th century Floridians as a source of drinking water as well as a place to take a cool swim in the summer. Some spring runs were modified to funnel the water through channels to power mills. Early in the 1900's, resorts were developed around sulfur springs due to the perceived medicinal effects of bathing in these springs. Today, springs in the region continue to attract visitors who enjoy their beauty and recreational opportunities.
In spite of the historical importance of springs to the Suwannee River Basin, only in recent times has the full geographic scope of the springs come to light. Much of the data in this report was collected from a survey of springs conducted by the Suwannee River Water Management District (SRWMD) from 1997 to 1998. As late as 1995, only 9 first magnitude springs had been reported for the Suwannee River Basin in scientific publications (Spechler and Schiffer, 1995). From this survey, we now know there are at least 18 first magnitude springs (Table 1). Of the197 springs in this report, 132 were previously unreported. These "new" springs were found by carefully surveying the river during low flow conditions.
Over two decades of monitoring the water quality of major rivers of the Suwannee River Basin indicates a statistically significant (at 95% confidence level) increasing trend in the concentration of nitrate-nitrogen (Ham and Hatzell, 1996; Hornsby and Mattson, 1998). The primary source of the nitrate-nitrogen is ground water entering the surfacewater system via springs (Hornsby and Mattson, 1998). There are areas where ground water along the Suwannee and Santa Fe river corridors has elevated concentrations of nitrate-nitrogen (Ceryak and Hornsby, 1998). While nitrate-nitrogen is not harmful to swimmers, it can be harmful to those who drink water containing concentrations greater than the Drinking Water Standard of 10 mg L"1. Nitrate-nitrogen can also be harmful to rivers by promoting excessive growth of algae. A need to quantify the amount of nitrate-nitrogen moving into the system is essential. Thus, the goals of the survey were to locate as many springs in the river corridors as possible and determine the water chemistry and flow characteristics.
Survey Area
The objective of this survey was to identify as many riverine springs as possible in the Florida portion of the Suwannee River Basin (Figure 1). The main stem of the Suwannee River was surveyed from State Road 41 in Hamilton County to the Gulf of Mexico. The Santa Fe River was surveyed from the confluence with the Suwannee River to the confluence with Olustee Creek. The Withlacoochee River was surveyed from the confluence with the Suwannee River to four miles north of State Road 6.

Classification System
Springs are classified in this report using a discharge rating system devised by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) in 1927. The system relates the discharge to a range of magnitudes (Table 2). Discharge is measured in cubic feet per second (cfs) and is reported in millions of gallons per day (mgd).
Table 2. Magnitude Classification System for Springs.
Magnitude Average Flow
1 100 cfs or more (64 mgd)
CM 10- 100 cfs (6.4-64 mgd)
3 1 10 cfs (0.64-6.4 mgd)
4 0.1-1 cfs (0.064-0.64 mgd)
Spring Numbering Convention
A spring is considered to be cataloged if it has been cited in the "Springs of Florida" 1947 edition or 1973 edition. This survey identified a large number of uncataloged springs. Thus, the following numbering convention was used to identify the uncataloged springs. The identification number was derived by taking the first three letters of the county in which the spring was located, the date on which the spring was located, and a numeric sequence number for the order in which the spring was located on that day; for example, ALA112971, Alachua County, November 2, 1997, spring number 1.

Specific Conductance (Sp. Conductance)
Conductivity is a measure of water's ability to conduct electrical current. Conductivity is measured in units of micromhos cm"1 (umhos cm"1); is related to the amount of dissolved salts (ions) in the water; and is determined by using Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) method 120.1. The SRWMD s surface waters, with generally low concentrations of dissolved salts, have lower conductivity. Ground water from the Floridan aquifer system has relatively high concentrations of dissolved salts. As ground water enters the rivers via springs and seeps, the conductivity of the river increases.
pH
pH is the negative log of the activity of hydronium ion which is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of water. The pH is determined by using EPA method 150.1. The pH scale is 0 to 6.99 acidic, 7 neutral, and 7.01 to 14 basic. Aquatic life is greatly affected when the pH is below 3 or above 11.
Ground waters are generally basic (i.e., pH greater than 7) due to dissolution of the calcium carbonate from the carbonate rock in the Floridan aquifer system. In a natural system, pH rarely goes below 3 or above 11.
Temperature
Temperature is the degree of hotness or coldness measured on the Celsius (C) scale and was determined by using EPA method 170.1.
The mean water temperature for ground water (spring water) is 22.2 C, which is an approximation of the mean air temperature of the region.


Nitrate-Nitrogen (Nitrate plus Nitrite-Nitrogen [NOg+NOg^D
Nitrate-nitrogen is a nutrient required by aquatic organisms for growth and reproduction. Concentration of nitrates is expressed as milligrams of nitrogen per liter of water (mg of NO3-N L"1) and was determined by using EPA method 353.3. High concentrations of nitrates may create an imbalance in a natural surfacewater system, causing algal blooms or other adverse effects. Nitrate-nitrogen concentrations that exceed the drinking water standard (10 mg of NO3-N L"1) can result in methemoglobinemia or "blue baby" syndrome in infants.
Discharge
Discharge is the measurement of the volume of water flowing past a point. Discharge is determined by multiplying the velocity of the water that passes a point by the cross-sectional area of the flowing water at that point. Discharge is measured in units of cubic feet per second (cfs).
Discharge measurements were conducted using either a Price-AA or pygmy current meter (vertical axis meters) or a Global Water velocity meter.
Vertical axis meter measurements were conducted as described in the USGS Techniques of Water Resources Investigations by Buchanon and Somers (1969). The measurements were conducted for velocities greater than or equal to 0.20 feet per second for the predominant number of sections in a measurement cross section. Water depth in the cross section was predominantly greater than 1.5 feet for AA meters and between 0.3 and 1.5 feet for pygmy measurements.
Vertical-axis meter discharge measurements were conducted such that, as a general rule, no partial section contains more than 5 percent of the flow in the stream. The two-point method was used for velocity measurement in each partial section for water depths equal to or exceeding 2.5 feet. Otherwise, the six-tenths or the three-point methods were employed as appropriate to the instrument capabilities, velocity profile characteristics, and the partial section depth. Partial section values were then summed for a discharge total for the cross section. Measurements conducted in this manner have an estimated accuracy range of 5 to 15 percent of actual discharge.
For the velocity meter, a comparable technique was employed in that partial sections were measured. To obtain average velocities in the partial sections, the meter was raised and lowered (4 times) in the partial section. Partial section values were then summed for a discharge total for the cross section. Measurements conducted in this manner have an estimated accuracy range of 15 percent of actual discharge.
Hydrogeology
Three different aquifer systems exist in the Suwannee River Basin: the Floridan aquifer system, the intermediate aquifer system, and multiple surficial aquifer systems. The carbonate Floridan aquifer system is the deepest and exists


everywhere beneath the survey area. In the northeast portion of the Suwannee River Basin, the intermediate aquifers exist within units of the Hawthorn Formation (above the Floridan). A third aquifer, the surficial aquifer, exists at land surface in sand that overlies portions of the intermediate aquifer and Floridan aquifer system.
A massive, thick sequence of carbonate rock underlies the entire SRWMD and constitutes the Floridan aquifer system. The majority of the rock is limestone, which is calcium carbonate. The remaining rock is dolomite, which is calcium-magnesium carbonate. Dolomite is basically harder than limestone but has similar hydrogeologic properties. Unconsolidated material (sand or clay) usually overlies the Floridan aquifer system. However, once the carbonate rock is encountered in the subsurface, it is rare to find sand or clay (except in sinkhole fill). The carbonates of the Tertiary period are up to 2,500 feet thick in the SRWMD and are saturated with water. The potable portion of this aquifer generally ranges between 250 and 1,200 feet below land surface.
The Floridan aquifer system extends throughout peninsular Florida and the southern portions of Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina. It generally underlies all of the Southeastern Coastal Plain and partially extends under the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico (Miller, 1986).
At the zenith of the last ice age (approximately 13,000 years ago), sea level was nearly 300 feet below its present altitude. It was from that time to the present that this regional aquifer system filled up with fresh water. As rain water recharges the aquifer system, the carbon dioxide in the rain water creates carbonic acid. This weak acid in the rain water dissolves the limestone and creates cavities and caverns in the aquifer. This results in a type of land form known as karst. A karst region typically lacks well developed surface drainage and has many sinkholes and springs. Also, a high percentage of rainfall will recharge directly into the aquifer in a karst region.
The Floridan aquifer system is the water source for all of the springs in this report, as well as the major source of drinking water in North Central Florida.
Characteristics of Springs
There are two main physiographic regions in the Suwannee River Basin: the Northern Highlands and the Gulf Coastal Lowlands. As the river descends from the Highlands in the northeast, it cuts through the confining sediments that overlie the Floridan aquifer system. Springs can occur in the Suwannee River Basin whenever the potentiometric surface of the aquifer extends above land surface and there is an opening for the water to escape through. Once in the


Figure 2. Advance Karst Development (Lane, 1994).
Lowlands, the rivers have eroded down into the limestone of the Floridan aquifer system. For a spring to flow, there must be a conduit and cavity system for the water to gather in and flow through; and the water level in the aquifer must be higher than the water level in the river. A large quantity of ground water seeps into the river via the banks, riverbed, and springs. The advanced karst development in the river corridors exhibits well developed underground drainage. The overburden has collapsed into sinkholes, caves have formed, and a portion of ground water flows through well developed conduits. Springs are the outflow from the conduits (Figure 2).
If there were no surface streams or swamps draining into the Suwannee River, it would still flow below White Springs from groundwater discharge from the Floridan aquifer system. The river is the drain for the entire basin, and all the ground water as well as surface water in the basin flows toward the river. When the river rises, the water level in the river can get higher than the surrounding water level in the Floridan aquifer system and the springs reverse flow. When this occurs, river water recharges the Floridan aquifer system.
Protection of Ground Water
Springs are indicators of the overall quality of the ground water of the region that contributes to their flow. The activities of humans on the land surface can greatly affect the quality and quantity of ground water. Pollutants generated by human activities can move into the ground water. For example, sinkholes are often referred to as go-away holes and are used for the disposal of unwanted items that can pollute the drinking water.


Spring Summaries
The distribution of springs by county is shown in Table 3. Each county has a listing of the total number of springs, number of previously cataloged springs, number of first, second, third, and fourth magnitude springs, total flow in cfs and mgd, nitrate-nitrogen concentration range, and the number of springs in each river basin. The distribution of springs between river basins is given in Table 4. Each river basin has a listing of the total number of springs, number of previously cataloged springs, number of first, second, third, and fourth magnitude springs, total flow in cfs and mgd, and nitrate-nitrogen concentration range.
Summary
There were 197 springs identified in this survey in the Suwannee River Basin of which 65 were previously cataloged. There are 18 first magnitude, 87 second magnitude, 57 third magnitude, 34 fourth magnitude, and 1 spring which had no flow. The nitrate-nitrogen concentrations ranged from 0.01 to 19.2 mg L"1. Three springs had nitrate-nitrogen concentrations greater than the Drinking Water Standard of 10 mg L"1. The springs discharge a combined total of 7296.41 cfs or 4669.70 mgd.

Comments:
This feature is not a spring, but a karst window. This spring flows intermittently. When the spring flows, it flows for approximately 300 feet, where it is captured by a sinkhole and re-enters the Floridan aquifer system. Under extremely high groundwater levels, the water will flow over land to the Suwannee River.
