The PRP Springshed Initiative began in response to the Florida Springs and Aquifer Protection Act passed in 2014. The PRP implemented the springshed initiative, which prioritized the petroleum discharges located within the springshed areas in the state of Florida. The PRP worked with the Florida Geological Survey to determine which facilities with petroleum discharges were in the springshed areas and created a list of these facilities that would be prioritized for assessment and remediation.
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is the state’s lead agency for environmental management and stewardship – protecting our air, water and land. The vision of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection is to create strong community partnerships, safeguard Florida’s natural resources and enhance its ecosystems.
