Alternative Water Supply and Water Conservation Projects Informational Webinar
DATE AND TIME:
Wednesday, January 26, 2022, 1:30 PM
GENERAL SUBJECT MATTER TO BE DISCUSSED:
The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) is now accepting applications for cost-share projects to develop alternative water supplies (AWS). This initiative is part of the State of Florida’s continuing efforts to implement cost-effective strategies to conserve its precious water resources while meeting the state's water needs. Partnering with local governments and other entities for implementation of water conservation projects and development of alternative water projects is an important and effective way to help accomplish this goal. All local governments applying for this grant must have an adopted irrigation ordinance that is consistent with the District's year-round Irrigation Rule in place in order to be eligible for funding consideration.
Eligible projects for consideration should be construction-ready AWS projects or ready-to-implement water conservation technology programs or projects that provide the most immediate benefits. The deadline to apply is March 1, 2022 at 4 p.m. Projects may receive up to 50 percent cost-share of eligible project costs.
