Description Little Otter Spring has a circular spring pool with an 87 ft diameter. The vent is located in the center of the pool, and depth over the vent is 24.0 ft. The bottom is soft sand and mud with a thick layer of algae and tree debris around the pool edge. Spring water is bluish and slightly turbid. The spring run is 6 ft wide, 3 ft deep and flows west approximately 150 ft into the east side of the Suwannee River. The run bottom has some exposed limestone; however, it is mostly soft sand and detritus with a thin layer of algae. Higher ground gently slopes to 3 ft above water level around the spring pool. Little Otter Spring is surrounded by privately-owned, forested floodplain of the Suwannee River. Discharge on September 4, 1997 was 15.3 cfs.
