By on December 13, 2017 in WNDB News

Flagler County, FL – The St. Johns River Water Management District is set to give Flagler County $500,000 towards a $3.9 million Plantation Bay wastewater treatment facility project.

The project is expected to improve water quality by upgrading Flagler County’s reuse system at the Plantation Bay wastewater treatment facility. The $500,000 will be in cost-sharing funding with the St. Johns River Management District.

The County was one of 17 applicants to the 2018 REDI (Rural Economic Development Initiative) Community/Innovative Projects Cost-Share Program. Projects chosen to be funded had to be related to water supply, water quality, natural systems, and flood protection.

The County’s Plantation Bay project and the City of Bunnell’s $462,000 west side storm and sanitary improvement projects were a just some of 7 projects approved for funding. During Tuesday’s Governing Board meeting, Commission Chair Greg Hansen spoke about the cost-sharing program.

“Thank you for the REDI Program,” said Hansen. “We appreciate your help. You also helped us greatly after Matthew and Irma. It was tremendous. Thank you again.”

The board then voted unanimously to give $3.46 million in funding for the 7 projects.

“This funding is very important to us,” said Craig Coffey, Flagler County Administrator. “We appreciate having wonderful partners like the St. Johns River Water Management District. The support helps us complete these important projects for our residents.”
