Reclaimed Water

Reclaimed Water TankWater History

Reclaimed water irrigation has occurred for many years in California, Colorado, Arizona, and Hawaii. In Florida, cities such as Sanford, Altamonte Springs, Casselberry, Orlando/Orange County, Cocoa Beach, St. Petersburg, Manatee County, Ormond Beach and DeLand, among others, have been promoting the benefits of irrigating with reclaimed water.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection Strongly Supports Reclaimed Water

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) has found that reclaimed water is good for irrigating, and has mandated utilities throughout Florida to develop positive reclaimed water alternatives such as DeLand's Reclaimed Water Program.

Reclaimed Water Will Help Keep Future City Rates as Low as Possible

Former U.S. Senator Bob Graham once said that "Water is Florida's most critical resource." Irrigating with reclaimed water is one method of conserving our valuable water resources as well as protecting the environment for our children.
