Millions of dollars could be funneled toward springs protection and restoration projects in the state if approved by the governor later this year.
Anne Shortelle, executive director of the Suwannee River Water Management District, said in a meeting last week that SRWMD alone had submitted about $15 million worth of proposals for springs projects upon a recent request by Gov. Rick Scott.
The projects, tentative at this point, will be presented as a first-ever line item for springs restoration in the governor’s budget.
