Innerarity Island Water and Sewer Upgrade Project

The Florida legislature has appropriated Escambia County as the receiver of the abandoned Innerarity Island water and sewer utilities. The utilities were in need of significant upgrades.

Escambia County entered into an inter-local agreement with ECUA to oversee and manage the upgrades to the water system. ECUA accepted the water system for operation and maintenance on March 1, 2018.  The water system design and construction is funded by a $1M FDEP grant. In July 2017, the FDEP awarded an additional $500,000 to the grant.

In regard to the sewer system, Escambia County has entered into an inter-local with ECUA to oversee and manage the sewer system upgrades. The FDEP grant is funding the Design and Construction Engineering and Inspection (CEI).  A Municipal Services Benefits Unit (MSBU) Ordinance for funding the sewer system construction was approved in 2017.
