Removal of Emerging Contaminants to Obtain Aquifer Recharge Credits in Broward County: Compliance with the Future Regulatory ProvisionsTown of Davie System II Wastewater Treatment Plant
The Town of Davie, FL, is evaluating the feasibility of an upgrade its System II Wastewater
Treatment Plant (WWTP) with tertiary treatment to promote indirect potable reuse and obtain
aquifer recharge credit in Broward County. Florida Department of Environmental Protection
(FDEP) requires the evaluation and piloting of any advanced treatment technologies that plan to
engage direct recharge to the Biscayne Aquifer. Chapter 62-610, Part V, F.A.C mandates the
evaluation of such technologies via a pilot study to show the compliance of the reclaimed water
with groundwater recharge standards.
AECOM is currently conducting an advanced treatment pilot study for the Town consisting of
Ultrafiltration (UF), Reverse Osmosis (RO) and Ultraviolet Light/Hydrogen Peroxide (UV/H2O2)
processes. This study is intended to evaluate the feasibility of this process for compliance with
the FDEP and Broward County Environmental Protection Department (BCEPD) regulations for
direct recharge to the Biscayne Aquifer.
