Reclaimed Water System


Reclaimed water is the product of an advanced secondary process that meets all public access reuse requirements. It also meets all EPA primary and secondary drinking water standards, execpt color, odor, and TDS. EWD is committed to 100% reuse of its reclaimed water, now and in the future. A mural is painted on the pump station by local artist Colleen Henry. The theme of the mural is the Water Cycle

Eagle Preserve, Myakka Pines Golf Club, Boca Royale Golf Club, Oyster Creek Golf Course, Lemon Bay High Schoool (Athletic Fields) Oyster Creek Regional Park, the Englewood Sports Complex and Thomas Ranch, are now using reclaimed water for irrigation. We also have many residential and one commercial reuse customers. Some of these customers are, Oak Forest, Park Forest, Boca Royale Country Club, Stillwater Subdivision and Wal-Mart.

Many of these projects have been funded through SWFWMD (Southwest Florida Water Management District) matching funds grants. The most recent matching grant, issued in 2009, was used to permit an ASR Supplemental Reclaimed Water Source for additional storage capacity to the Reclaimed Water Supply.
