SFWMD holding seminars on water grants available large water users
|Program provides grants for projects that save millions of gallons of water each year|
The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) will host a series of seminars to provide information on funding assistance for water conservation projects through the Water Savings Incentive Program (WaterSIP). The seminars will include a general overview of the water conservation program and a review of critical dates for the application process.
Created in 2002, WaterSIP provides matching grants up to $50,000 to water providers and large users for installing water-saving technology. Qualifying WaterSIP projects include high-efficiency irrigation equipment, low-flow indoor plumbing retrofits and soil moisture and rain sensors.
For Fiscal Year 2010, the SFWMD Governing Board approved nearly $460,000 in WaterSIP funding for 13 water conservation projects throughout South Florida. The projects will save an estimated 238 million gallons of water per year.
