Wastewater Collection System
Moving wastewater from homes and businesses in our service area to our regional wastewater treatment facility is a dirty job, but our Collections Crews are proud to provide this valuable service to our community. More information on our Wastewater Collection System.
Wastewater Treatment System
Treating sewage (wastewater) is a big part of what we do. At our award-winning wastewater treatment facility we use diffused aeration, secondary clarification, high-rate filtration, and high-level disinfection to convert raw wastewater to I.Q. Water that is perfect for meeting landscape irrigation needs. More information on our Wastewater Treatment Facility.
The Loxahatchee River District’s IQ Water program results in treated wastewater being recycled to meet landscape irrigation needs, and preserves valuable un-tapped water supplies for the natural system and to meet our drinking water needs. More information on IQ Water and Reuse.
The WildPine Laboratory is our state-certified laboratory that provides scientific staff, equipment, and professional analysis of daily wastewater treatment facility operations, as well as an extensive river research program. More information about the WildPine Lab.
We have educated generations of young scientists along the banks of the Loxahatchee River. Our earliest home was next to the lighthouse, but today our environmental education program is operated out of the River Center on the east side of Burt Reynold’s Park (805 North US Highway 1). More about The River Center.
We are proud our longstanding partnership with the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary. Busch Wildlife Sanctuary is located on our property – right between our Administration Building and our Wastewater Treatment Facility. We encourage you to visit this wonderful facility that is open to the public free of charge. More about Busch Wildlife Sanctuary.
