General Information

Best Advanced Secondary Wastewater Treatment Facility, State of Florida Department of Environmental Protection's Phelps Awards

One of the most important tasks of the District over the past 30 years has been the elimination of septic tanks in our region, which pose a persistent threat to the environment. To date, over 85% of the 60,000 homes in our service area are served by the regional sewer system, and we are working to develop sewer installation programs for the remaining neighborhoods located in the urban areas.

Where geography allows, gravity sewers have been installed. In low lying areas with high water tables and restricted construction, low pressure systems which operate with individual pumping units at each home have been installed.
