County Projects


Leon County Springs

In May 2018, Leon County begins construction on the first of five septic-to-sewer projects in southside Leon County located in the Primary Springs Protection Zone to improve water quality for citizens.

Leveraging more than $5 million dollars from the State of Florida, Leon County will convert septic tanks to central sewer, removing nutrients from the ground water and protecting precious natural resources.

Since 2005, studies have shown that septic systems are negatively impacting our fragile Florida environment. Locally, it has been proven that failing septic systems in Leon County are contributing to degradation of water quality in Wakulla Springs.

By hooking up now under the grant program, citizens will save the expense of any future connection. Connection to central sewer now could save thousands of dollars while helping to preserve our water supply and protect the groundwater that flows to Wakulla Springs. To make this opportunity possible, Leon County used match dollars to leverage millions of dollars in funding from the State of Florida.
