Levy Blue Springs WQ Improvement Project
Background
The Levy Blue Water Quality Improvement Project is a strategic partnership between the Town of Bronson and the District. Levy Blue Springs is an important asset to the Bronson Community and directly connects to the Waccasassa River. Bronson currently has a very limited gravity sewer collection system. Bronson has developed a multi-phase plan to expand municipal sewer service throughout the town and reduce nitrogen loading to groundwater. The process includes the removal of septic tanks from service and routing wastewater for treatment to the town's wastewater treatment plant. As a part of the Regional Initiative Valuing Environmental Resources grant grogram, the District has agreed to contribute $50,000 for sewer connections. The Levy Blue Water Quality Improvement Project will extend the sewer to the Bronson Recreation Park, providing additional protection to the Levy Blue Springs.
