Body

 

Background Information:

Various MHC wastewater systems in the County are outdated and problematic. Many assets within these systems fail and pose costly risks to the residents and adverse effects to the environment. Improvements made to the wastewater systems of these flood-prone communities will increase the reliability of service during typical conditions and increase the resilience during wet weather events.

 

Fiscal Impact:

FDEP grant funding in the amount of $25,000,000.00 for construction. No County match is required.

 

Grant funding is budgeted under Mobile Home Communities Wastewater Collection Systems Improvements Project 005015A, included in the Capital Improvement Plan, funded by the American Rescue Plan Act Fund in the amount of $13,879,000, and anticipated federal grants through the Sewer Renewal and Replacement Fund in the amount of $29,066,000.
