Sullivan Slough and Blue Sink by Amanda Davis 2022-01-18.
Sullivan Slough is the real name of what we’ve been calling
Chervil Drive Distributary, and Blue Sink is what local people call Chervil Drive Sinkhole.
Sullivan Blue Sink is where Withlacoochee River water ends up after flowing into
Sullivan Slough, 0.83 miles downstream from Florida Campsites Boat Ramp,
0.73 miles upstream from the
