Steam wisps across the surface of Ginnie Springs at the campground in High Springs in 2018. Their history is one of over-pumping freshwater supplies to depletion, which is one of the reasons that they are looking to transport bulk water from Ginnie Springs to their Madison Blue facility, which can no longer provide that installation with sufficient fresh water to fully utilize its bottling capacity. Again, Dr. Kincaid is correct when he says that existing management strategies are not filling the bill. Minimum Flows and Levels, when looked at closely, are merely lip service by an agriculture/industry driven government trying to show the public that they are doing something. The problem is to the point where if the public doesn’t feel the pinch then strategy is probably insufficient. Bottled water is a necessity only in crisis environments — and visit this site should be retained for that use only. The overwhelming use of bottled water is convenience, one that is becoming increasing unsustainable, and would be easy to eliminate. With respect to water quality, nutrient pollution referred to by Dr. Kincaid results in an overabundance of algae, which can be at least partially mitigated by sufficient velocity of flow, which can be only attained with higher (one might say normal?) water volume.
