Water Reuse for State Agencies, State Universities, and Water Management Districts

 

Florida Statutes direct all state agencies, state universities, and water management districts to use reclaimed water to the greatest extent practicable. Florida Statutes also require submittal of Annual Agency Reuse Reports to the Secretary of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) on or before February 1, detailing efforts to use reclaimed water.

2012 Annual Agency Reuse Reports

Why Reuse?

Water reuse simply makes sense for Florida and Florida has become the national leader in water reuse. Using reclaimed water (treated domestic wastewater) conserves precious drinking water resources. Water reuse also offers opportunities to recharge and augment available surface water and ground water resources in a manner that protects public health and environmental quality. Use of reclaimed water by state agencies, state universities, and water management districts aids in Florida’s water conservation efforts. Use by state agencies, state universities, and water management districts also serves to educate the public about water reuse, the quality of reclaimed water, the safety of reuse, and the acceptability of reuse.

Water Reuse Seminar

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) convened a seminar in Tallahassee on July 27, 2005 to disseminate information related to water reuse and to discuss the statutory requirements that apply to all state agencies, state universities, and water management districts.

Preparing Annual Agency Reuse Reports
