You don't have to go searching around for a hot spring anymore. Just opened: the posh Turkey Point Springs (actually the Turkey Point cooling canals for two nuclear reactors). Forget about all those other hot springs, this one has the added rejuvenating powers of having gone through nuclear reactors. What could be better for your health then a cauldron of...lets face it -- who knows what. It was reported today the cooling canals over there are even hotter, sometimes 102 degrees...too hot to cool the reactors. They are taking water meant for Biscayne Bay to try not to fry the reactors:
“After Oct. 15 is when we don’t have the regular flows and that’s when we get really concerned that you’re going to get salinity rising and problems spiraling,” said Jane Graham, an Everglades policy analyst for Audubon Florida.
The decision to pump the 100 million gallons will be an important test of district rules designed to protect water, Graham said.
So get on over there to Turkey Point for the restorative water, just ask the crocodiles. They love it.
