SEVEN HUNDRED SPRINGS. Seven Hundred Springs, the eleventh largest springs in Texas, is four miles south of Telegraph in Edwards County (at 30°16' N, 99°56' W). The springs burst from numerous cavities in Edwards limestones at the base of a bluff on the northwest side of the South Llano River. The average discharge from 1939 to 1978 was two gallons per second. For thousands of years Tonkawa and Lipan Indians lived at the hard-water springs, where they left many artifacts.
