    Default Hart conditions?/river level meters?

    Any one know what level the measurements on the river levels around Hart Springs would indicate the spring has gone tannic/reversed?

    No, but you can call the park and ask them.

    Default Hart Springs

    Took a shot and drove up to Hart today, hoping the rivers rising level would kill the flow.
    Boy did we get hit it right! Hardly any flow at all, even in the entrance and the first 300 ft. or so. Plus, visibility was 60-70 ft. and no particulate at all! About as good as it gets for Hart! Did a leasurly swim, no pulling at all, lots of time to relax and look around, almost to the Black Lagoon . Black Lagoon looked pretty good as well, from the surface.
    Water level measurement gauge at the bridge across the basin was at 9.1, for future reference, water level was right at the top of the steps where you enter the basin.

    And yes, I understand that cave outflow versus river back pressure is dependent
    on aquifer levels as well as river levels. My original cave diving buddy was a Florida hydrologist....learned a lot from him and Bill Sinclair at SWFWMD....back in the early '70's.
