The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is accepting comments on the springs restoration projects under consideration for funding in Fiscal Year 2023-24.

DEP solicited project proposals aimed at identifying and implementing projects that protect the quality and quantity of water from springs.

A total of 36 projects were submitted, and as part of DEP’s review, the department is accepting comments from stakeholders through July 14, 2023.

Public comments must be submitted using the springs public comment form. The form is limited to 250 words; however, separate comment documents may be attached.

Following the comment period, DEP will carefully review and consider all comments received before making final project selections. Final selections will be posted on Protecting Florida Together. Learn more about the Division of Water Restoration Assistance’s Springs Restoration Grants.
