Six speakers from the scientific community then presented talks on the record of water quality declines at Wakulla Spring and the unique hydrogeologic features in the Woodville Karst Plain that control water, and thus contaminant flow to the spring. Particular focus was directed to scientific work that has established connections between land use practices in the Woodville Karst Plain and water quality in the springs. Following the plenary session, a luncheon presentation was given on exploring Wakulla cave.
