A total of 13 Floridan Aquifer springs were identified in the Choctawhatchee River basin (Figure 4). Springs in the Choctawhatchee River basin include those with typical fissure-type vents and those that incorporate areas of diffuse, upward percolation of ground water into pools and runs. Springs discharging via diffuse percolation are termed seep springs (Copeland 2003). Addtional Floridan Aquifer springs may exist in the Choctawhatchee Basin and may be found under different hydrologic conditions.
In addition, the District visited three sites historically documented as springs that are actually Surficial Aquifer seeps. Discharge, if possible, and water quality measurements were recorded at these seeps as well. Weaver Spring, Ray Hill Spring, and Pleasant Ridge Spring all have water quality characteristics consistent with a surficial-siliciclastic aquifer.
