Springs Protection and Restoration Projects
Springs Protection and Restoration Projects
Over the last two years, the District has devoted significant funding for projects to provide water quantity and quality benefits to springs within the District. About 45 percent of Fiscal Year 2013-14 budget and about 57 percent of Fiscal Year 2014-15 preliminary budget are devoted to springs protection and restoration activities. Landmark State appropriations for springs projects have helped make this commitment a reality.

The District is putting these funds to work by partnering with various agencies, local governments, landowners, and organizations through cost-share programs and projects to conduct restoration activities at numerous springs. Many of these projects are designed to restore groundwater levels and to reduce nutrient loading within priority water bodies and springsheds throughout the District.
