City secures state funding for utilities infrastructure

Proactive program diverts damaging pollutants

The City of Daytona Beach was awarded $3.9 million for seven stormwater and wastewater projects through funding provided by the Hurricane Stormwater and Wastewater Assistance Grant Program. The $100 million grant program was created for eligible governments by Governor Ron DeSantis and the Florida Legislature during their special session in December 2022. 

The emergency funding is intended to accelerate restoration and address damages to critical wastewater and stormwater infrastructure as a result of the unprecedented back-to-back storms of hurricanes Ian and Nicole.

Daytona Beach received the full funding request for each submitted project and no matching funds are required. Grant applications and project summaries were submitted by Utilities staff.

  • Butts Pond Stormwater Pump Station Improvements $625,000 The pump station was flooded during Hurricane Ian causing the motor to become partially submerged. This was detrimental to the motor and required the motor to be sent out for repair. This grant will provide funding to raise the motor three feet, add another pump for redundancy and buy and install a standby generator in case of power failure.     
  • Lift Station No. 7 Repairs and Upgrades $1,015,000 Located on Loomis Avenue, this lift station flooded during Hurricane Ian causing the motor to be submerged.   
  • Lift Station No. 8 Repairs and Upgrades $1,015,000 Located on Bellevue Avenue, this lift station was submerged during Hurricane Ian causing the motor to be submerged. 
  • Lift Stations No. 67 and No. 68 Repairs and Upgrades $945,000 Located in Pelican Bay, during Hurricane Ian these flooded causing their electrical racks to become partially submerged. 
  • Lift Station No. 113 Generator Replacement $80,000 Located on Lakeside Professional Boulevard, off Strickland Range Road, this lift station suffered damage during Hurricane Nicole when there was a fire in the engine enclosure, which caused significant damage to the internal components of the generator. 
  • West ISB Gravity Main Upgrades $261,240 During Hurricane Ian, this 20-inch pipe collapsed due to the saturated ground. A significant amount of dirt and sediment entered the system. Lining the pipe will reinforce it and mitigate further collapses.
