Project Name: Florida Keys Water Quality Improvement Project (FKWQIP)
Project Sponsor and Address:  Army Corps of Engineers located at 701 San Marco Blvd, Jacksonville, FL 32207
Project Amount Requested:  $6,000,000
Description of Project: A project to implement a water quality protection program to preserve the Florida Keys marine ecosystem. The project would be a valuable use of taxpayer funds because the communities of the Florida Keys are required to meet stringent wastewater and storm water management regulations as well as comply with water quality and environmental protection standards. To do so, they need to access Environmental Infrastructure funding to construct state of the art treatment facilities throughout the Keys. The FKWQIP projects have and will continue to provide for new permanent jobs in communities from Key Largo to the Village of Islamorada to Marathon. In addition to these important benefits, the communities of the Florida Keys are sustained by the tourism industry which is dependent in large part on a healthy marine environment. Funding for this project will continue to support the $1.3 billion per year tourism industry and 21,000 dependent jobs in the State of Florida.
