Gov. DeSantis Announces $2 Million Grant For St. Pete Beach Wastewater Upgrades

ST. PETERSBURG BEACH, Fla. — It was recently named the best beach in the USA, and yet, St. Pete Beach’s growth has been stunted for years. For seven years, St. Pete Beach has had a moratorium on new construction that would add capacity to the island because the sewage and wastewater system couldn’t handle the increased capacity.

Now, work is underway to overhaul the sewage system, and St. Pete Beach Mayor Al Johnson said 10-12 hotels have expressed desires to build or expand in the beach community.

Tuesday, October 12, Governor Ron DeSantis announced the state is contributing $2 million to help complete the work on the sewer system.
