Governor Jeb Bush signed
The Wekiva Parkway and Protection Act
into law on Tuesday, June 29, 2004, at Wekiva Springs State
Park, in Apopka. The law authorizes building the Wekiva Parkway
and provides protection to the Wekiva River system. The Act
requires a comprehensive approach to protecting the Wekiva River
system involving local governments, state agencies, and the St.
Johns River Management District. The Act requires the Department
of Health to address nitrogen reduction through appropriate
onsite disposal standards.
Department of Health rulemaking for the Wekiva Study Area was put on hold by the Legislature until the conclusion of the
