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.
