Rising up from deep within the aquifer, cool clear water flows from hundreds of springs that dot the Florida landscape. Florida springs
are natural wonders that are threatened constantly.
A team of journalists, filmmakers and researchers documented how water travels through the aquifer, springs and downriver
to the Gulf of Mexico.
Located in the Florida Panhandle near Tallahassee, Wakulla Spring
is a colossal spring system. On average, more than 250 million gallons of water flow from Wakulla Spring every day forming a nine-mile river that reaches the Gulf of Mexico.
