ECUA Town Hall - Proposed Reclaimed Water Storage Tank

10/16/2015 1:45 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

ECUA’s current wastewater treatment plant on the Beach produces approximately daily approximately 800,000 gallons of reclaimed water.  About 10-15% is currently used for irrigation and the rest is discharged into the Santa Rosa Sound.  Instead of discharging the majority of the reclaimed water and using potable water from the mainland for irrigation, ECUA is in the planning stages of extending the reclaimed water system on Pensacola Beach so that more cheaper reclaimed water may be used for irrigation.  A reclaimed water storage tank is necessary for this transition.

The current planned location for the storage tank is between the Catholic Church and the elementary school. 

ECUA will host a town hall meeting related to the proposed storage tank and pumping station for the ECUA reclaimed water system on Pensacola Beach.  The meeting is scheduled for Nov. 3, 2015, at 6:30 pm in the SRIA Board Room.

    what a terrible idea - sewage (treated or not) is sewage.
    sure lets store it right next to our greatest resource - our kids!!

    This is a great idea! It will help the environment by preventing this partially treated water from being discharged directly into the sound. Plus it will save residents money irrigating their property. It is a clear win-win and we should move forward with it immediately.
