The Boulware Springs Water Works Building is located directly adjacent to the brick reservoir for the springs, on a site of gently rolling to steep topography at the northern edge of Paynes Prairie.

Boulware Springs, free-flowing and gravity-fed, was at one time estimated to contribute 300,000 gallons per day to Boulware Run, which flows south to Paynes Prairie and thence to the Florida aquifier.
