Silver Springs is a series of artesian springs located in Marion County and offers the world’s largest flow of artesian water. The source of the main spring is a cavern 65 feet long and 12 feet high. Most of the water that comes from the dozens of springs in the group is from the region’s abundant rainfall, which drains into the porous limestone subsurface and later rises to the surface, filtered to unusual clarity.
In the last decades of the twentieth century, the greater Ocala area had one of the highest growth rates in the country for a city of its size. The population of Marion County is more than 250,000.
