The St. Johns River Water Management District is providing $700,000 in cost-share funds to the City of Palm Coast for a project to rebuild aging flood control structures.

The project will help protect residents and property in a 1,739-acre area of the city.

“This project demonstrates how the St. Johns River Water Management District and the city of Palm Coast continue to work together to protect people and property from flooding, which is particularly meaningful with Hurricane Matthew as a recent memory,” said St. Johns River Water Management District Executive Director Dr. Ann Shortelle.

The St. Johns River Water Management District’s cost-share funding program allows the city of Palm Coast to complete important flood mitigation projects designed to protect lives and property,” said Palm Coast Stormwater Manager Mike Brennan.

The L-1 and K-1 flood control structures were built in the 1970s and will be rebuilt to today’s standards. The L-1 is located near Sentinel Trail, and the K-1 is near September Place, south of State Road 100 in Palm Coast.

Both structures provide flood mitigation for the S and U sections of Palm Coast.
