Two Bay County cities will get grants totaling nearly $2 million to upgrade stormwater treatment facilities to ensure water is cleaner when it reaches St. Andrew Bay.
The two water quality projects were recently approved by the Northwest Florida Water Management District governing board. They were among nearly $10 million in funding for water supply projects throughout Northwest Florida.
“The district is committed to protecting and improving water quality for the communities and natural resources of Northwest Florida,” said District governing board member Nick Patronis in a press release. “We look forward to continuing to partner with local governments, state agencies and other stakeholders to improve water quality within the St. Andrew Bay and other water bodies of the Panhandle.”
