Health Spring (aka Wall Spring)

    Health Spring is at the town of Wall Springs, about 3 miles south of Tarpon Springs. There are numerous sewage fields in the area, probably the reason for increased flow in the past few years. This site is now closed except by exploration permit.

    Health Spring pool is about 30 feet in diameter and 10 feet deep near the vent. The pool is enclosed by a concrete wall extending 2 or 3 feet above the water. Discharge is northwest into a rectangular swimming-wading pool, northwest under a concrete retaining wall into a 1 acre reservoir, and then into Boggy Bayou through gate and flap valves which prevent a reversal of flow.
