Location

Site 1 spring pool and outfall is located in a mature forested wetland (bayhead) approximately 600-feet south of the south shoreline of Lake Harris.

Lat. 28.746550° N, Long. 81.798470° W

Description

The circular pool was about six feet across and six feet deep and contained cool and slightly tannic water, but no vents were found. Discharge from the pool appears to flow down a small heavily vegetated channel excavated during the construction of a small causeway through the wetland. No discharge was apparent from the pool on September 12, 2007. However, farther downstream, water was flowing fairly vigorously from the bayhead into the littoral zone of the lake. This suggests that the site may be an area of general groundwater seepage, or that undetected vents are hidden in the vegetation of the drainageway.

This "spring" was located using by aerial thermography and is documented in St. Johns River Water Management District's Special Publication SJ2008-SP7, Submerged Springs Site Documentation: August and September 2007. It was visited on September 12, 2007 by Tom Morris and Mark Long, of Karst Environmental Services, Inc. accompanied by Jeff Davis of the SJRWMD. A video of the spring is available from the SJRWMD.

Utilization

This spring is undeveloped.
