Silver Springs Alliance of Save Silver Springs and Springs Protection Select the Point Source causing the most "Slime" as 

Green Alert:

Kanapaha Sewer Plant of Gainesville Utilities appears to#1 source of Slime Causing pollution from their 10 million gallon daily discharge into the drinking water.  Many Water Rally goers were not even aware of the daily spill coming from Gainesville.

Data from many sources shows the increase of Nitrates at both Rainbow and Silver Springs in perfect timing with the little known discharge with casing at the approximate 200' level.   From around 200 feet to 1000 feet, sewer effluent spills into our aquifer daily.

10 Million Gallons every day is now having an impact some are calling unacceptable "Slime".

Senator Graham attended and spoke during the Water Rally at Silver Springs State Park and may be influncial as a new key to stopping the discharge from Ocala and Gainesville Utilities directly into Silver and Rainbow Springs.  While his comments were more broad his urging citizens to get involved set the stage for some of the newest solution ideas about water quality and quantity concerns.  Central Florida Public Policy survey pointed out an under current cunsurn about utility drainage wells, and direct discharge to the aquifer by utilities such as Gainesville's Kanapaha Sewer Plant.  "Slime" is showing up at rivers, lakes and springs as a result of the high nutrient dumping to save operational costs for utilities.  It appears that Adena Springs Cattle Operation could be the solution to getting rid of high nutrient water in the millions of gallons daily coming from Alachua Storm-water and Sewer Effluent problem. 
 
Many consider Kanapaha Sewer Discharge to the Aquifer cased at under 200' as a Spill on a daily basis now in its second decade.   Even environmentalist from the Gainesville area are expressing concern about what they term "Slime".
Tea shirts addressing the resulting slime caused by this high nitrate spill were seemingly every where.

Environmental Experts are gathering to stop the City of Ocala Drainage Wells from dumping directly into Silver Springs. 
 
 

Senator Lee Constantine from the Ocala area is an expert on the Orlando Utilities discharge of 50 million gallons of processed sewer effluent daily in rapid drainage wells adding to direct shallow dumping into Wekiva Springs.  Focus comes off normal citizens and farmers.
 
Back when Constantine was a Senator he worked with Marion County Environmental experts in efforts that resulted in a new focus on Utility Pollution that finally resulted in a reduction of funding for programs that blamed farmers and normal citizens.  Kanapaha Sewer Plant may finally be stopped from dumping into drinking water that feeds Silver and Rainbow Springs.

Kanapaha Sewer Effluent may be answer to Adena Cattle Operation.

 
Speakers Bob Knight and John Morran gave enthusiastic talks that may cause a new focus on Point Source Pollution.  Both asked the audience to become involved in the task of exposing pollution to our springs.  Discussions after the day long event seemed to focus on the Slime showing up and radiating out from Gainesville.  Both Moran and Knight are from Gainesville and may be in a position to stop the 10 million gallons of processed sewer effluent coming from their area impacting our lakes, streams and springs.
 
 
Many Gainesville experts including Social Downturn Author HT Odum missed the point source pollution by Ocala and Gainesville Utilities.
