SRWMD to assist with Little River Springs restoration

Live Oak —

The Suwannee River Water Management District (District) Governing Board has approved a partnership agreement with Suwannee County to provide restoration activities at Little River Springs County Park near Branford.

River floods have caused significant erosion and bank failures along the spring bank, including the displacement of some of the rock along the banks. The project will improve water quality and enhance safe access to the spring.

The project will repair 70 feet of eroding shoreline along the north side of the spring run, remove large rock boulders from the spring bed, and stabilize the spring bank to control further erosion. Rock boulders along the spring bank will be repositioned and cemented together for stabilization and vegetation will be planted to control erosion.

The District will provide $90,000 toward the project. Suwannee County will provide $15,000. The District’s portion of the funding is through Legislative appropriations for springs received last year. The project is one of many springs protection and restoration projects recently approved by the Board.
