Location

Mooring Cove Springs is located northwest of Yalaha in the Lakes and Springs Subdivision, or 6 miles southeast of Leesburg.

Description

Mooring Cove Springs is a 4th magnitude spring with several sand boils in a circular pool about 200 feet in diameter. Concrete steps lead down a grass bank to the pool. Clear water issues from a few small sand boils in the algae-covered bottom. One vent is below the concrete steps, with the largest boil on the opposite side of the pool from the steps. Some aquatic vegetation is present in the spring pool and run.

The spring run is 3 to 4 feet wide and flows northward about 170 feet into a man-made canal, which then flows to the south shore of Lake Harris.

The spring is in a development and the land surface has been recontoured and planted in grass which is kept mowed. There are two retention ponds adjacent to the spring, one to the south and another to the west. Runoff from the grassed areas can flow directly into the spring and the spring run as there is no swale or berm to capture runoff.

Utilization

The area around the spring is an amenity for residents of the subdivision. The water flows into Lake Harris.

Contact Information

The spring is on private property.
