Found this today.  Interesting publication.  Has some good reading on the springs in Big Bend (analysis of the water, age of the water, recharge locations), plus just great reading overall on the geology of the area.

Enjoy,
BBH

Bringing this thread back from the dead...

The link is still there, but I couldn't get a successful download.

Ended up here:

So...for $0 + $5 s/h = $5 total, I got the original (>90-page, full color, glossy stock) publication!

Not a bad deal.

haha -- not weird at all when I suddenly remember that I had to replace my ancient cable modem this past weekend, and my unsuccessful download attempts preceded that... :icon_rolleyes: :loser:

still a good deal, though.
