Clearwater Seeks to Restore Groundwater
Clearwater has scheduled a public information session about a project to replenish groundwater.
CLEARWATER – This city is working to ensure the future of the water supply.
. After years of thorough analysis and testing, Clearwater is moving forward with the design and permitting phase of the Clearwater Groundwater Replenishment Project.
Groundwater replenishment purifies reclaimed water to better-than-drinking-water standards and recharges the aquifer using that purified water. This process is safe and is used throughout the country and the world. The goal is to replenish the aquifer and provide a new local water supply that protects the ecosystem and environment. It also will ensure the sustainability of high-quality drinking water to meet current and future needs of the community.
Current project costs are about $33 million. This project is cooperatively funded by the Southwest Florida WaterManagement District. Construction is expected to begin later this year.
Join city staff and project experts from 6p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday (Feb. 28) at the Main Library, 100 N Osceola Ave., for an overview of the proposal. This is the second of three public information open house events; the first was Nov. 15 and the third will be from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. May 2 at the East Library, 2251 Drew St.
