Florida DEP Invests $90 Million In Water Quality Improvement Projects

Florida Department of Environmental Protection has provided more than $90 million toward the recent completion of seven water quality improvement projects in Central and South Florida. The funding was awarded through the Division of Water Restoration Assistance’s various funding resources and programs.
Completed projects were in Apoka, Gasparilla Island, Largo, Martin and St. Lucis counties, Sebring and Stuart, FL.

“We are pleased to partner with water management districts, cities and local municipalities to fund infrastructure needs,” said Drew Bartlett, DEP deputy secretary for ecosystems restoration. “Projects ranging from septic to sewer conversions, and aging pipe replacement to shoreline stabilization and nutrient reduction are vital to helping Florida’s springs, rivers and waterways meet water quality goals.”
