Lake Charlene - Warrington Study

The Federal Emergency Management Agency Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (FEMA/HMGP) has awarded to Escambia County a  grant for the Lake Charlene Outfall Project, to reduce the loss of life and property due to natural disasters. The goal of this mitigation project is to improve drainage for the Lake Charlene area. The project begins at the channel intersecting Lake Joanne Drive on the west and expands east to the intersection of South 61st Avenue, then south to the outfall at U.S. Highway 98. 

The grant is set up in two phases:

Phase 1 - Design and Construction: 

Federal HMGP funds total $314,274.  Design for this phase has been submitted to FDEM.    Phase 1 will provide protection against a 50-year storm event.

Phase 2 Construction:

The project will then be considered by FEMA for funding and an agreement amendment.Design has been submitted to FEMA for approval. 

The construction schedule will depend on identification of needed easements and issues associated with those easements. 

Future improvement is planned to provide a secondary outfall for the Bridle Trail lake area through an alternate funding source.
