This spring is about 1,000 feet from the north line and 2,100 feet from the west line of sec.32, at the head of a small run about 100 feet S. of the Fish Hospital, a hole in a sharp bend of the Weeki Wachee River 1,000 feet upstream from State Hwy 597 bridge. The spring is an almost perfectly cylindrical pipe about 8 feet in diameter and 40 feet deep. Water from the vigorous boil flows north through a channel about 3 feet wide and half a foot deep. The channel empties into the Weeki Wachee River at a large hole 150 feet in diameter and 118 feet deep known as the Fish Hospital. The flow was about 1.5 cfs; on May 22, 1962. The spring is not used.
