Today, Governor Rick Scott along with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) Secretary Jon Steverson and the Northwest Florida Water Management District (NWFWMD) Executive Director Brett Cyphers visited the Econfina Springs Complex Restoration projects located in Bay and Washington Counties.
Their visit began at the ongoing Williford Springs Restoration construction site, and completed at the Pitt Springs site. All were impressed with the design and aesthetics of the springs restoration projects.
Genesis CEO, Mark Llewellyn, attended to discuss the planning, design and construction support services Genesis provided for this impressive springs restoration.
Earlier this year, Governor Scott said, “Florida’s springs are one of the many natural treasures that bring families, visitors and job creators to our state. Over the last two years, we have championed record funding for Florida’s springs, and we are committed to building on that success going forward. By making these important investments now, we will be protecting and restoring our great springs for generations to come.”
Scott’s proposed 2015-2016 “KEEP FLORIDA WORKING” budget includes $50 million to help restore Florida’s springs which are becoming increasingly polluted. Protecting these natural resources directly benefits the environment and communities of Florida.
Genesis supports funding the restoration of Florida’s springs and the protection of all water resources. From the beginning, Genesis has been committed to our mission of being good stewards of the environment and taking responsible roles in society.
