Gretna Water Project Gets Initial Approval

Jan 17, 2018

A Florida House panel has approved a plan that would send money to the city of Gretna for its water booster station. Representative Ramon Alexander says the funds will support the growth of the community.

Over the last five years the city of Gretna has experienced significant growth including new developments and a water line to the town of Greensboro to provide up to 100,000 gallons of water a day. In response to the need to improve the water capacity, the city has completed the engineering and design of a water storage facility at the intersection of State Road 12 and Interstate 10 to support economic development at the intersection,” Alexander says.

The proposal which would appropriate $800,000 for the project got unanimous approval from the House Agriculture and Natural Resources Appropriations Subcommittee.
