Background
The Hart Springs Restoration Project is a partnership between the District and Gilchrist County. Sediments, sand, and portions of the retaining wall have washed into the spring vents for years, altering the magnitude of flow from the springs. Over the last few years, Gilchrist County has replaced deteriorating retaining walls, constructed access points to the spring and spring run, and stabilized erosion issues around the springs. The current project will build upon these efforts.

Project Benefits
  • Remove nutrients, sediments, and debris from the spring vents and spring runs
  • Improve spring flows and water quality

Budget
The District is funding the $76,700 project; Gilchrist will provide in-kind services for the project.
