The Genesis team provided professional civil engineering, architectural, and landscape architectural design services in the development of spring restoration and protection designs for Pitt Spring, Sylvan Spring, and Williford Spring within the Econfina Springs Complex. The preservation of water quality was the foremost concern with emphasis on stormwater runoff control, erosion control, and re-vegetation of eroded shorelines of the Econfina Creek bank and spring pools.

Impacts relating to long-term public use were mitigated through the use of designated parking areas, improved trail alignments, elevated boardwalks over sensitive natural areas, and the placement of well defined outdoor use areas. New amenities include restroom facilities, boardwalks, view decks, springs access stairs, picnic shelters, parking areas, and canoe/kayak docks. Restored natural areas include the formerly eroded creek banks, abandoned trails, and spring banks which have been revegetated with native plants and restored to their original profiles.
