Districts ready to fund $4 million in water conservation projects
PALATKA, Fla., Dec. 18, 2015 -- A total of $4 million in state funding is available for water conservation projects in the Central Florida Water Initiative region and the North Florida Regional Water Supply Partnership region.
The St. Johns River Water Management District -- in partnership with the Suwannee River Water Management District (SRWMD), Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD), South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) and Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) -- is soliciting for water conservation projects from public entities that help create sustainable water resources, enhance conservation efforts and improve efficiency of use.
The St. Johns District is accepting applications through Jan. 29, 2016, for water conservation projects that will protect or enhance springs in central and north Florida. Although the St. Johns District is administering the contractual portion of the program, applicants outside the jurisdiction of the St. Johns District will be given equal consideration.
