At the City Council Meeting of September 28, 2009, the City Council approved Resolution #2009-R-24 enacting the “Increase Reclaimed Customer Initiative”. In an effort to encourage residents to utilize the reclaimed water system and reduce effluent discharge from the Wastewater Treatment Plant into the Indian River Lagoon the resolution authorizes the abatement of reclaimed water impact fees, adjusts the connection fee and reduces the reclaimed water rates. At the September 27, 2010 City Council meeting, authorization to extend this resolution for an additional year was approved.

REASONS TO USE RECLAIMED WATER
Reclaimed water is highly treated wastewater effluent that is treated to advanced wastewater treatment standards at our Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant. This water has been subjected to strict water quality standards established by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP). This product is continuously monitored and analyzed by our Licensed Wastewater Treatment Plant Operators and Lab Administrator to insure continued quality and compliance with regulations.
Reclaimed water is currently available in the Florida Shores area of the City of Edgewater. The service is limited by the extent of our reclaimed water distribution system, which is a completely separate system of underground piping from the pipes carrying potable water.
To have reclaimed water installed or for more information, please contact Environmental Services at 386-424-2476, or visit City Hall at 104 N. Riverside Drive.
