Shands Bridge Spring

Shands Bridge Spring in St. Johns County

Shands Bridge Spring is a submerged third-magnitude spring. The St. Johns River is about 17 to 20 feet deep near the spring. An almost circular depression (recorded by Fathometer) was observed in the bottom of the river at the spring (Spechler 1996). Groundwater is discharged from a vent at the deepest point in the spring, about 30 feet below the surface.
