Turner Springs Improvement

The City owns a pre-1914 water source and approximately 25 acres at turner springs. It was used to supply water to town until Lake Davis was built. The project is to improve the spring; replace the old water lines and connect to existing lines along highway A-15.
The property also has about 20 acres of second-growth timber land that is in desperate need of fire-hazard reduction/watershed enhancement work; as it is badly over-stocked with young growth.
