Wastewater Treatment or Reuse Water Production? – Redefining Water Reclamation Facility Reliability Criteria
In 2003, 84 percent (4.89 billion gallons) of wastewater collected by Collier County Water-Sewer District (CCWSD) was reclaimed and used for irrigation; in 2006, the amount was 91% (5.15 billion gallons). CCWSD has developed a robust water reclamation program and operates the largest reuse system in South Florida. Consumer demand for reclaimed water has led to unique and innovative production reliability and storage considerations. To maintain required reclaimed water system level of service (LOS) and consistently meet demand, the County treatment plants are designed and operated in manner more resembling water production facilities than traditional wastewater treatment plants. Complimenting production reliability, the County has developed an Aquifer Storage/Recovery (ASR) program for reuse water.
