A total of 11 springs or spring groups, comprised of more than 36 vents, were identified in the Econfina Creek basin. These springs were concentrated in the area 0.75 miles north of Walsingham Bridge to 0.5 miles south of Highway 20 (Figure 7). Some areas that were historically listed as “potential” springs (Follman, www.tfn.net/springs) were investigated and found to be simply turbulent upwelling of surface water caused by the creek channel geometry. Some springs, such as Deep Spring in Bay County were determined to be Surficial Aquifer discharge points instead of Floridan Aquifer springs and were not included in the inventory.
