Cost-share funding

Cost-share funding, FY 2015–2016

The St. Johns River Water Management District accepted applications until March 13, 2015, for cost-share funding for water conserva­tion and construction projects that will contribute to any of the following:

  • Water conservation that reduces water demands by:
    • Increasing irrigation efficiency for both crops and landscapes, including soil moisture sensors, rain sensors and irrigation head upgrades
    • Automating the tracking of customer water use by water utilities to enhance water conservation measures and educate water users about their water use and conservation measures and benefits
    • Installation of high-efficiency indoor plumbing retrofits, automatic line flushing devices or hydrant flushing devices, and pre-rinse spray valves
    • The district encourage industrial, commercial, agricultural and institutional water users, as well as homeowner and condominium associations, to apply for funding.
  • Alternative water supply development that replaces existing or planned groundwater use with other sources such as reclaimed water, surface water and seawater
  • Water quality/nutrient-loading reduction in springsheds and other water bodies with adopted nutrient total maximum daily load requirements including: the middle and lower St. Johns River, the Indian River Lagoon and Northern Coastal Basins waterways. Nutrient reduction projects can include reduction or elimination of domestic wastewater discharges, removal of onsite sewage treatment and disposal systems and connection to central sewer, stormwater storage and infrastructure modification, sediment reduction facilities and retrofits.
  • Water resource development that increases the source of water available, such as providing storage of wet weather flows for potential use during dry periods.

The benefits of funded projects are directed to one or more of the following district priorities:


  • Funding is contingent upon the district Governing Board’s final budget approval in September 2015.
