Governor Scott Inspects Williford Spring Project

Florida Governor Rick Scott, DEP Secretary Jon Steverson, FWC Executive Director Nick Wiley, and staff from the Northwest Florida Water Management District yesterday celebrated progress on the Williford Spring Restoration Project.

Governor Scott toured Williford Spring and its surrounding recreational area, the site of the District’s $1.66 million restoration project to improve water quality and clarity, improve shoreline protection and enhance protective public access to the spring.

The restoration project will expand on the District’s continued protection of various springs along Econfina Creek, including the recently completed project to restore and enhance Pitt and Sylvan springs.
