Florida: Legislature Sends Aquifer Recharge Bill to Governor

The Florida Legislature sent a bill to Governor Rick Scott on Monday, March 26 that would allow utilities to pump purified reclaimed water into Florida’s aquifer, which supplies drinking water for nearly 10 million people. Under the legislation, the reclaimed water would be treated to meet federal drinking water standards before it is injected into the aquifer’s raw water supply. Some environmental groups have expressed concerns about the safety of the purified water and are asking Governor Scott to veto the bill. Learn More.

The city could not handle the facility’s water needs without the use of effluent that is currently treated and discharged to the Mississippi River. Learn More.
