Orlando partners with Florida DEP to improve WWTP
The City of Orlando Partners with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to Improve the Iron Bridge Water Reclamation Facility
ORLANDO – In partnership with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, through the Clean Water State Revolving Fund, the City of Orlando’s Iron Bridge Regional Water Reclamation Facility received funds to improve the plant solids processing system.
This improvement, financed by the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF), will cover the purchase of new equipment, which will save energy, reduce operating costs, minimize the use of chemicals and reduce the volume of plant solids produced at the plant.
This project will provide water quality benefits for community members in and near east Orlando as well as parts of Casselberry, Winter Park, Maitland, Seminole County and Orange County.
The CWSRF program is administered by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, with joint funding from the U.S. Environment Protection Agency and the City of Orlando.
CWSRF programs operate around the country to provide states and communities the resources necessary to maintain and improve the infrastructure that protects our valuable water resources city and nationwide.
