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. Of the 57 projects, 3 received funding in Duval County.
JEA Hidden Hills Golf & Country Club
This project brings 1,600 feet of reclaimed water pipe to serve Hidden Hills Golf & County Club that will result in providing approximately 0.36 MGD reclaimed water and a reduction of nitrogen and phosphorous from entering nearby waterways.
Total Cost $791k; District Share $261k
Baldwin - Brandy Branch Power Station
The project eliminates a water discharge into Deep Creek and constructs an effluent wet-well, transfer pumping system from the Town of Baldwin to the JEA Brandy Branch site. There, the reclaimed water will discharge at the JEA Cooling Station. This reuse eliminates nearly 0.25 MGD of groundwater withdrawal.
Total Cost $2,695k; District Share $889k
JEA Gate Pkwy - Shiloh Mill Blvd to Town Ctr Pkwy
The project installs 2,400 feet of reclaimed water pipe to serve planned developments. The project will result in providing 0.033 MGD of reclaimed water and a reduction of nitrogen and phosphorous to local waterways.
Total Cost $367k; District Share $121k
