City Validates Innovative Reuse Treatment Options Without RO

Hollywood, Florida’s 55.5 MGD Southern Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant (SRWWTP) treats wastewater from Hollywood and six neighboring municipalities in the southern region of Broward County. Florida’s outfall rule requires the city to begin a process to largely eliminate the use of its ocean outfall and implement 20.4 MGD of additional reuse on an annual basis. In 2014, the city and its engineering consultant conducted a pilot study to determine and demonstrate advanced treatment technologies that were likely to be the most cost effective while providing reduced carbon emissions compared to the county’s typical treatment requirements.
