Florida's Springs

Florida has more springs than any other state with about 1000 known springs ranging in size from very small (trickling springs) to 1st magnitude springs that produce hundreds of millions of gallons of water per day. Florida’s springs are located all across the state thanks to the Floridan aquifer, the underground water source for Florida.

What makes Florida’ springs so remarkable is that they serve as hotspots for biological diversity and provide shelter for some of the rarest, most exotic plants and animals, thus why local governments and the state of Florida are doing all they can to preserve these geographical beauties.
