Scott seems to have launched an environmental public relations offensive in recent weeks with previous announcements dealing with the Apalachicola River, Lake Okeechobee and the Everglades. His announcement on Wednesday was met with a mixture of skepticism and support from environmentalists.

Rep. Linda Stewart, D-Orlando, said the announcement essentially was thanking the Legislature for appropriating the $10 million up for springs.
