Econfina update: Springs need continued care

Published March 27, 2009 - NewsHerald.com
The Genesis Group, an environmental planning and engineering company with a Tallahassee office, is involved with the Pitts Spring project. The downside, said company President Mark Llewellyn, is that the area will be closed to the public for about a year. Work will start in October if bidding and permitting is finished by then.

Plans include removing the stone wall that now borders Pitts Spring and creating a new landscape that controls erosion and runoff. There also will be new landscaping for a trail to nearby Sylvan Spring, separate trails for canoe-launch and tubing areas, elevated walkways with handicap access, and restrooms with composting toilets that don't discharge into the springs.
