Spatial domainPima County
AbstractSPRINGSB displays springs throughout Pima County. The springs were extracted from the USGS GeoNames database, USGS DLGs, and Pima County field reconnaissance information, and then buffered radially 300 feet.

ADWR springs are not included in this data layer.

NOTE: By design, this layer is no longer in accordance with the springs Special Element layer (SPRINGS). SPRINGSB was used for modeling purposes early in the SDCP process and may be defined as an inactive layer in the future.
