Approximately one year ago, Brevard City Council began exploring the possibility of increasing its water
capacity in order to meet future growth needs. The City believes it can accommodate future growth by
expanding its water capacity to 5 million gallons/day.
The main goals of this work session are to:
• Understand how the water permitting process works
• Understand where the single sources of water are to meet the City’s projected demand
• Understand how the City’s location of a new water intake will impact the County
• Discuss next steps for Commissioners
