South Central Wastewater Treatment Facility
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The largest construction project ever undertaken by Brevard County Government’s Utility Services Department will kick off with a ground-breaking ceremony at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 15, at the South Central Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility.
A planned $42 million expansion will virtually double the size of the facility, which serves Viera, Suntree, and a portion of West Cocoa with wastewater treatment and water reclamation services.
There is currently an equivalent of 28,443 residential connections, and the expansion will double the current six million gallons-per-day capacity.
“The timing is right for this expansion as Viera continues to grow at a rapid pace,” said Utility Services Director Jim Helmer.
“The six million gallons-per-day expansion should be the ultimate build out for the service area. It will provide wastewater treatment for the foreseeable future, providing a total of 12 million gallons-per-day of wastewater treatment capacity.”
The ground-breaking, which will be held at the South Central Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility, 10001 N. Wickham Road in Viera, is hosted by Brevard County District 4 Commissioner Curt Smith, the Board of County Commissioners and Brevard County Utility Services Department.
Attendees will include County Manager Stockton Whitten and representatives from Viera Company, contractor Adams Robinson Construction and design engineer and project manager Quentin L. Hampton Associates.
