"Boiling Spring is a large spring on the Gasconade River near Jerome in Pulaski County, Missouri. Previous studies indicated the average discharge of Boiling Spring is at least 67 cubic feet per second and had estimated the recharge area for the spring to be an elongated region lying to the south and southeast. Using a technique first derived in 1935 but expanded with additional data, the discharge of Boiling Spring has been determined to be closer to 130 cubic feet per second, making it a large first magnitude spring. The recharge area, which was verified to be an elongated south to southeastern region, has a complex relationship with Wilkins and Yelton Springs on Mill Creek and Relfe (Coppedge) Spring on Spring Creek. The recharge areas for these and other springs apparently overlap and form a tiered system with Boiling Spring being the lowest base level spring for the region"--Abstract, page iii.
