Conservation is key in keeping the water flowing
Some of Central Florida's springs may grow drier if the increasing human demand on the region's underground water supply continues.
In Rock and Wekiwa springs, which are surrounded by booming development in Orange and Seminole counties, flows are expected to decrease by close to 10 percent by 2025.
Relying less on water pumped from the ground -- something water managers are poised to do -- is a crucial step toward saving the state's springs.
