Conservation Program(s): Gulf Coast Conservation Grants Program
Project Title: Advancing Water Conservation and Management on Private Lands in the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint (ACF) River Basin
Organization: Southeastern Association of Fish and Wildlife
Project ID: 6001.17.055893
Status: Active
Description: This project will promote best management practices for water conservation on 6,000 acres of agricultural lands within the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River basin. Advancements in water conservation and the installation of irrigation retrofits for agriculture producers, will provide resiliency towards alterations in flow, and reduce sedimentation and nutrient runoff. This project will target the largely rural and agriculturally dominated Chipola River basin, the largest tributary of the Apalachicola River. With regional partnerships, this project plans to protect flow for 6 federally listed mussel species, gulf sturgeon, and a host of other endemic species native to the Chipola River and ACF basin. The preservation of minimum flows entering Appalachia Bay protects the coastal ecosystem dependent on freshwater discharge. Coastal communities of the Florida panhandle are reliant on its health for the seafood/shellfish industry and tourism.
Award Amount: $250,000.00
Matching Contribution: $750,000.00
Location: The project location is entirely within the Chipola River basin, which encompasses Calhoun and Jackson counties in the central panhandle region of Florida. The Chipola River basin is part of the larger Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint (ACF) River basin located in Alabama, Georgia, and Florida.
