The sanitary sewer system serves the more than 10,000 year-round and more than 25,000 seasonal residents as well as the many businesses and their employees that make up the Islands’ population. The wastewater is collected through more than 41-miles of mainline sewer pipes of various sizes and transports it to the more than 40 pumping stations located on the island, where it is then pumped to a regional wastewater treatment facility in West Palm Beach. There it is treated and recharged back to the earth and in some cases reused for industrial cooling water. All of these assets require daily maintenance and upkeep and your Water Resources personnel have made a long-term commitment to fulfilling those needs. These are just some of the ways that your storm and wastewater professionals preserve and protect you and the environment.
