Overview Location & Specifics Conditions Resources Nearby Systems  
Jenkins Spring is located inside Hernando Beach Park off Shoal Line Rd. in western Hernando County and forms the headwaters of Jenkins Creek. The spring pool is elliptical in shape; approximately 200 feet in length and 60 feet wide. and water depth at the vent is greater than 100 ft. Discharge information for the spring is lacking, however Rosenau et al. (1977) reported discharge information for Unnamed Spring No. 4 and Unnamed Spring No. 5 in the vicinity of the Jenkins Creek. It is unclear if either of these springs coincide with Jenkins Spring. The discharge for Unnamed Spring No. 4 was measured at 10 cfs on 22 May 1962 and discharge for Unnamed Spring No. 5 was 12 cfs on the same date (Rosenau et al. 1977). The spring has two runs, one flowing south and the other northwest to form Jenkins Creek. Jenkins Creek flows northwest approximately 0.5 miles where it joins with the Mud River and flows to the Gulf of Mexico.
