• Clearwater to Host Public Information Open House on Groundwater Replenishment

    CLEARWATER, Fla. — The city of Clearwater along with the Southwest Florida Management District and partners will host a public information open house about the Clearwater Groundwater Replenishment Project on Tuesday, May 2. Groundwater replenishment is a two-step process that includes purifying recycled water to better-than-drinking water standards and recharging the aquifer using that purified water.


    After years of research and testing, the city is moving forward with the design of an Advanced Water Purification Plant with plans for it to be constructed at the Northeast Water Reclamation Facility off of State Route 580 and McMullen Booth Road. The plant will have the capacity to produce up to 3 million gallons of purified recycled water every day.


    The public is invited to learn more about this innovative project by attending an informational open house. There will be educational stations and staff available to explain the project and answer questions.


    Date:                     Tuesday, May 2

    Time:                    5-7 p.m.

    Location:             Clearwater East Library, 2251 Drew St., Clearwater

    The Clearwater Groundwater Replenishment Project is cooperatively funded by the city and the Southwest Florida Water Management District. The District provides support and funding for local government projects to beneficially use reclaimed water to help meet the region’s water supply needs.
