Plans to Remove Wild Waters in Silver Springs
SILVER SPRINGS - The fate of Wild Waters is one step closer to being determined... and could be one step closer to being closed.
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection has released their renovation plan for Silver Springs.
One part includes opening Wild Waters this summer, but eventually closing it down, and allowing people to swim in the head spring of Silver Springs.
One Marion County resident is happy that Environmental Protection has decided to preserve the integrity of the land - "It's certainly not going to be as commercial as it once was and hopefully it is going to be a place where future generations can enjoy the beauty...the natural beauty of the place and keep the springs pristine clear."
Silver Springs became a state park in October of last year.
The last workshop about the project will be Thursday at one p.m. and then the plan will be sent off to be finalized.
