Advanced Wastewater Treatment Facilities

Wet Operates three Advanced Water Reclamation Facilities which serve the citizens of the City of Clearwater. Each facility is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. These facilities produced very highly purified water that is utilized as reclaimed water by our customers. Any purified water not utilized as reclaimed water is discharged to surface waters. Each facility utilizes a combination of state-of-the-art biochemical, chemical and physical treatment processes to produce highly purified water which is suitable for use as an alternate water supply for irrigation and industrial purposes. This alternate water supply is very beneficial because it reduces the demand for limited and costly to produce potable water.

The East Plant Water Pollution Control facility has a design capacity of 5 MGD (million gallons per day), and currently operates at an annual average flow rate of 2.27 MGD.

The Marshall Street Plant Water Pollution Control facility has a design capacity of 10MGD (million gallons per day), and currently operates at an annual average flow rate of 5.6 MGD.

The Northeast Water Pollution Control facility has a design capacity of 13.5MGD (million gallons per day), and currently operates at an annual average flow rate of 6.65 MGD.

The City of Clearwater Master Reuse System (reclaimed water production, storage, transport and distribution facilities) has a permitted capacity of 15 MGD and currently operates at an annual average flow rate of 6.67 MGD.
