The City of North Miami will receive a $2.3 million state grant for its septic to sewer conversion project, the second highest allocation earmarked for local governments. The State of Florida recently announced the award to the city as a part of its $22.7 million investment to support water quality improvements in the South Florida region.
The state’s multi-million-dollar allocation will come from the Biscayne Bay Grant Program to seven local governments including its second highest allocation to the City of North Miami. North Miami will use the funds to convert both residential and commercial properties from individual septic tank use to the city’s centralized sewer system. The $2.3 million state grant is in addition to $500,000 from the State of Florida Department of Environmental Protection the City of North Miami received in October for septic to sewer conversion. Residential and commercial properties serviced by individual septic tanks in the City of North Miami will now benefit from connecting to the centralized sewer system.
