Southwest Regional Water Reclamation Facility project construction on schedule

The Southwest Regional Water Reclamation Facility (SWRWRF) is an existing wastewater treatment facility (WWTF) owned and operated by Citrus County approximately three miles east of the Chassahowitzka River, which has been designated an Outstanding Florida Waterway.

The Chassahowitzka River flows to the Gulf of Mexico and is formed from pristine waters contributed by more than 12 springs.

Inverness WWTP Honored by FWPCOA

The Florida Water and Pollution Control Operators Association honored Woodard & Curran’s Water Reclamation Facility in Inverness, during their annual award luncheon in Fort Pierce Florida this August. 

The facility uses a state-of-the-art Biological Nitrogen Removal process to treat up to 1 million gallons of wastewater daily. This allows the facility to produce, on average, 600,000 gallons of reclaimed water every day, which is then pumped through a three-and-a-half-mile pipe to be used for irrigation at the Inverness Golf and Country Club.

Two county water-quality projects get state funding

Under the leadership of Governor Rick Scott, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection announced a suite of 40 projects that will receive $50 million from the Fighting for Florida’s Future budget to improve water quality, reduce nutrient loading, recharge water supply and protect habitat in Florida’s iconic spring systems.

This includes a state investment of more than $9 million to protect springs in Southwest Florida, including Aripeka, Weeki Wachee, Kings Bay, Crystal and Rainbow springsheds.
