Rainbow Springs, once known as Blue Springs, is a first magnitude spring complex with four main vents or outlets in the headspring area. These springs, along with several others in the spring run, contribute approximately 52 percent to the total discharge of the Rainbow River. The volume of flow from the Rainbow Springs complex ranges from 335 to 685 million gallons per day (mgd) and averages 461 mgd, making it approximately the fourth largest in the state, the eighth largest in the world.
