The Wastewater Treatment Division operates the Winter Park Estates city-owned wastewater treatment facility. This facility treats approximately 10 percent of the city’s sewer capacity needs and is rated at 750,000 gallons per day. All treated water generated at this facility is used as irrigation water at four spray sites, two golf courses, a park, and a cemetery. This facility is staffed 24 hours per day, 7 days per week by state certified operators.
The city’s Industrial Waste Program monitors the concentrations of chemicals and strength of raw sewage coming from commercial users. Four water treatment plants and 60 lift stations are monitored from the telemetry computer located at this facility. The remaining 90 percent of the city’s sewer capacity is treated under wholesale agreements with the City of Orlando, City of Altamonte Springs, and Orange County.
