The Town of Davie, FL, is evaluating the feasibility of an upgrade its System II Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) with tertiary treatment to promote indirect potable reuse and obtain aquifer recharge credit in Broward County. Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) requires the evaluation and piloting of any advanced treatment technologies that plan to engage direct recharge to the Biscayne Aquifer. Chapter 62-610, Part V, F.A.C mandates the evaluation of such technologies via a pilot study to show the compliance of the reclaimed water with groundwater recharge standards.

AECOM is currently conducting an advanced treatment pilot study for the Town consisting of Ultrafiltration (UF), Reverse Osmosis (RO) and Ultraviolet Light/Hydrogen Peroxide (UV/H2O2) processes. This study is intended to evaluate the feasibility of this process for compliance with the FDEP and Broward County Environmental Protection Department (BCEPD) regulations for direct recharge to the Biscayne Aquifer.
