Wastewater Disposal
The primary wastewater effluent disposal facilities consist of an effluent pumping station, on-site Class I Deep Injection Well (DIW) at 3,009 feet deep. The DIW is designed for a capacity of 10.0 million gallons per day under the Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s permit. Under the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) permit, the DIW pump station is permitted for an effluent disposal capacity of 5.0 million gallons per day. The well has been operated at approximately 52 percent of the 5.0 million gallon per day permitted design capacity and has sufficient remaining capacity to serve anticipated growth over at least the next 10 years. Effluent disposal for the WWTP is also provided via unrestricted public access irrigation of the City’s WWTP grounds, and other public access areas.
