Wastewater Treatment Plant Tours

The Chiquita Water Reclamation Plant treats wastewater (6 million gallons a day) from homes in the area and prepares it to be reused to irrigate parks, common areas and golf courses. The tour is a great opportunity to learn first-hand about:

  • What happens to the water  after it goes down the drain
  • How wastewater gets travels from homes to the treatment plant
  • How water is treated to be used as recycled water
  • How to conserve water every day
