Draft Programmatic Environmental Assessment in the Florida Keys
After Hurricane Georges, funds were allocated to assist counties whose needs were yet unmet through allocation of primary disaster relief funds. This Unmet Needs money was earmarked for the counties most impacted by Hurricane Georges, including Monroe County. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), State of Florida, and the impacted counties determined funding priorities. Monroe County requested that wastewater management improvement projects be considered for disaster funding since many existing wastewater facilities in Monroe County are not storm-resistant, do not provide adequate treatment, and contribute greatly to degraded water quality in the Keys (Figure 1-1). Since then, FEMA has received grant applications from the Village of Islamorada (Islamorada) and the Keys Aqueduct Authority (FKAA) requesting Federal assistance to upgrade or replace their existing wastewater treatment facilities.
