Program: Volusia Water Alliance presents the latest of a webinar series: Springs, a Window into the Aquifer. Join us on Friday October 29 at 9 a.m. when we will explore how our springs, as part of our larger springshed, help us understand the current state and future outlook of our water supply. We are fortunate to have six experts who will give us a detailed overview of the components that affect our springs. From local plans to meet our future water needs, to historic changes in waterflow and water quality; water conservation; the Blue Spring’s Basin Management Action Plan (BMAP), and a practical Water 101 segment, we will learn all of the valuable information that our springs can give us.
