Groundbreaking for Caloosahatchee Connect

March 3, 2023

The City of Cape Coral invites the public to the Caloosahatchee Connect Groundbreaking Ceremony at Horton Park, 2600 SE 26th Place, Thursday, March 23, at 10 a.m.

The Caloosahatchee Connect Project is a large reclaimed water pipeline the City of Cape Coral is constructing between Cape Coral and Fort Myers that will provide additional irrigation water to residents. The additional irrigation water source will reduce withdrawals from freshwater canals and help maintain water levels during the dry season. This project, slated for completion this year, will allow Cape Coral to purchase millions of gallons of reclaimed water from the City of Fort Myers that would otherwise be discharged into the Caloosahatchee River.
