- Maintaining the adequacy of the short and long term effluent disposal capacity through the expansion of the Conserv I reuse system, continued expansion of the citrus irrigation program (and alternatives to citrus) for Conserv II and increased artificial wetlands permitted capacity.
- Meet the EPA and FDEP permit limits at our treatment plants with a goal of at least 99-percent compliance.
- Meet all concurrency requirements of the Growth Management Plan through an ongoing evaluation of system demands versus system capabilities.
- Ensure appropriate system maintenance for both plants and collection systems through ongoing evaluations of the condition of the sanitary sewers, lift stations and treatment plants relative to reliability and longevity.
- Taking a proactive role in such areas as groundwater contamination, industrial pretreatment and advising other City departments taking on environmental concerns.
