Volume of Flow

Volume of Flow (Discharge) is typically measured in “millions of gallons per day” or “cubic feet per second” (cfs).

Gainer Springs produces over 1,400 million gallons of water each day.

This high flow volume classifies the spring as a First Magnitude Spring, making Gainer Springs one of only 75 First Magnitude Springs in the US and one of only 27 in the state of Florida.

Springs have dynamic flows dependent on climate and hydrogeology, and volume of flow is based on the median value of all discharge measurements for a recorded period of time.
