The other day Brittney Gilbert linked to a post about the hidden rivers of San Francisco. And I’ll admit, it’s been on my mind, in terms of Nashville. There’s the now-underground creek that runs north of the Capitol. Are there others? But more than that, I’m curious about the springs. You see all these signs around town that say “north of here, thirty feet was such-and-such spring.”
Where is the spring now? I honestly don’t get it. Did they all dry up? Did someone plug them up? Pave over them? What? Could they come back? Spring forth from another place?
And who is in charge of maintaining our hidden springs?
Is this under Metro Water’s purview?
