About Reclaimed Water
Like all natural resources, the Biscayne Aquifer, Miami-Dade County’s current source of drinking water, is not limitless. The use of reclaimed water in Miami-Dade County helps preserve the Biscayne Aquifer. Reclaimed water is highly treated, filtered and disinfected wastewater that is beneficially reused. Reclaimed water can replace or supplement groundwater supplies.
Water Reuse Feasibility Study
The purpose of the Reuse Feasibility Study, released in 2007, is to assess the feasibility of using reclaimed water in Miami-Dade County, particularly in light of current water supply issues.
Coastal Wetlands Rehydration Pilot
Because of concern over water quality and the associated treatment technologies that would be required to attain water quality high enough to discharge into Biscayne Bay's Outstanding Florida Waters, a Wastewater Reuse Pilot Project was established as part of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan.
South District Wastewater Treatment Plant
The raw wastewater that comes into the South District Wastewater Treatment Plant first goes through conventional treatment, which consists of several steps. In the case of Miami-Dade County's project, the water will go from secondary treatment through the High-Level Disinfection plant that is under construction.
