The Department of Environmental Protection is awarding the City of Cape Coral with a six hundred thousand dollar grant for storm-water improvement projects.

The city will use these funds to upgrade about 300 catch basins and enhance swales along Burnt Store Road. The new catch basins will enhance water quality by allowing more storm-water runoff to filter into the ground, rather than flowing directly through storm drains and into the canal system.
