District expedites permit for SpaceX launch complex refurbishment

PALM BAY, Fla., May 12, 2017 -- The St. Johns River Water Management District has issued a permit for a stormwater management system that will help streamline the permitting and approval process for Space Exploration Technologies Corporation's (SpaceX) evolving development of a launch complex at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

"Our regulatory staff worked closely with SpaceX and the U.S. Air Force to ensure the application was processed efficiently and accurately," said St. Johns River Water Management District Executive Director Dr. Ann Shortelle. "This project will actually introduce stormwater treatment where none previously existed, resulting in benefits to wetland habitats in this region of the Indian River Lagoon."

SpaceX is modifying Launch Complex 40 to accommodate future launch vehicles. Most of the complex consists of open grassed areas, launch structures and associated infrastructure and access roads. Construction of the stormwater system will provide treatment for 38 acres of complex that currently discharges without treatment.
