FWEA West Coast Chapter 2018 Winter Luncheon
Presentation Title: Developing a 100% Reuse System with Regional Benefits
Description: Pasco County Utilities is an industry leader in non-potable reuse. The Pasco County Master Reuse System is the sole method of wastewater effluent management for Pasco County. Over 23 million gallons per day is reused through irrigation, groundwater recharge, and industrial reuse. As the County has grown without proportionally increasing the irrigation customer base, additional reuse strategies were needed to manage wet weather supplies with dry weather demands while providing the maximum benefit to the water resources of the region. This presentation will focus on the County’s approach to complete reuse, recently implemented projects that support better management of seasonal reclaimed water flows, and the project benefits that have led to unique design and construction strategies to achieve funding support to accomplish the County’s goals.
