PALATKA – Forty-three projects will share in approximately $21.3 million from the St. Johns River Water Management District for construction of water supply and water conservation, water quality improvement, flood protection and natural systems restoration projects. The district's governing board approved the project ranking for the fiscal year 2017-2018 Districtwide Annual Cost-share Program.

Four projects in Seminole County will receive funding:

  • Oviedo Regional Stormwater Park – The project involves the construction of a Regional Stormwater Pond (RSP) that will provide a centralized drainage option for existing and future development planned in the downtown area and will reduce flooding to a 28-acre area. Funding amount: $15,205,360
  • Sanford RCW Orl-Sanford Airport Phase 2 – The proposed project involves the installation of RCW main along the Lake Mary Blvd extension which will provide 0.103 MGD of reclaimed water. Funding amount: $$17,518,459
  • Longwood Septic Tank Abatement Program Transmission Main – Longwood's continuation of their septic tank abatement program requires additional wastewater treatment capacity. This project includes construction of a reclaimed water transmission main to connect to the City of Altamonte Springs' Regional Wastewater Reclamation Facility, which will provide the needed treatment capacity for Longwood's existing and future septic tank connection projects. This project will provide additional water for recharge for the Wekiva system through the City of Apopka storage area, and also this will add reuse source to the regional system between Apopka, the City of Altamonte Springs and the A-FIRST system, Orange County Utilities, and others in the CFWI. The project provides 0.7 MGD of reclaimed water, with the long-term estimated flow estimated at 1.1 MGD. Funding amount: $19,105,344
  • Chuluota RCW Storage Tank – The project consists of the construction of a 500,000 gallon reclaimed water ground storage tank and modification and reactivation of the existing pond and pump station at the Chuluota WWTP site.
