        Nature | Florida's Spring

        This video from Nature discusses Florida’s abundant springs and how they are shaped by the long journey of rainwater from the sky to the ground. Rainwater absorbs acids from plants and soil which dissolves limestone bedrock. This process allows cavities to form underground. The porous limestone acts as an underground purifier producing huge amounts of pure spring water suitable for drinking.
