A $1.2 million grant will help construct a 1 million gallon elevated water tank and associated facilities. This project will enhance service in the mid-county area and add inland storage for system interconnected with coastal service areas. A $144,000 grant will help provide a reclaimed water upgrade on Highway 285 in Niceville.



“We greatly appreciate the NWF Water Management District efforts and assistance from State Representatives Greg Evers and Doug Broxson," Commissioner Wayne Harris stated.
