Today, Florida Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (D) announced the “largest funding allotment for Keys septic to sewer project in a decade.”

Calling it “a win for public health, environment, and local economy,” the sunshine state congresswoman informed that the U.S. Army Corps would be providing “$5 million to Florida Keys water quality improvement program.”

As the Vice Chair of the Water Resources and Environment Subcommittee, Rep. Mucarsel-Powell commented, “I am thrilled that my efforts over this past year have resulted in the largest reimbursement for this critical Keys’ project in a decade.”

She added that “this transition has been crucial for public health, the protection of our delicate natural environment, and every aspect of the local economy.”

As well, she detailed that “while this is a step in the right direction, I will continue to advocate for the remainder of the funds.”

Thanking her for commitment, Rep. Grace F. Napolitano (D), the Chairwoman for the Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment, said that “in her first year with the Subcommittee, Ms. Mucarsel-Powell has been a tireless advocate for protecting the water quality of South Florida, including the Keys and the Everglades, which is reflected in this announcement by the Corps.”

Cumulatively, the Keys have received $68.5 million from the federal government out of the $100 million that were authorized by Congress for FKWQIP.
