About the Springs

Lower Santa Fe Springshed: Hornsby, Poe, Ginnie and Blue Springs and their Contributing Area

The general neighborhood of the Lower Santa Fe River and Hornsby, Poe, Ginnie, and Gilchrist Blue springs includes areas to the west of Interstate 75, to the east of the Wacassassa Flats, and south of the Santa Fe River extending at least as far as the city of Newberry. In addition, portions of Columbia County north of the River and south of Ft. White are believed to be located in the springshed.
