The Water Reclamation Facility in Inverness, Florida was recently presented with a safety award from the Florida Water & Pollution Control Operators Association (FW&PCOA). The award was presented during the organization’s annual awards luncheon in Fort Pierce, Florida on Wednesday, August 10.
The facility uses a state of the art Biological Nitrogen Removal process to treat up to 1 million gallons of wastewater daily. This allows the facility to produce, on average, 600,000 gallons of reclaimed water every day, which is then pumped through a three-and-a-half-mile pipe to be used for irrigation at the Inverness Golf and Country Club.
“Safety is our greatest priority, and I’m proud our staff embraces our safety program. In 2015, we worked over 18,300 safe hours, and we have worked over 2,500 hundred consecutive days without a lost time incident.” said Glenn Burden, Area Manager for Woodard & Curran, the firm responsible for operations at the facility.
This is the third consecutive year Inverness’s Water Reclamation Facility has received this award from the FW&PCOA.
