BREVARD COUNTY • VIERA, FLORIDA – Due to construction and plant upgrades at the South-Central Water Reclamation Facility, there will be limited reclaimed water available to customers from now through Sunday, June 13.
Reclaimed water will not be available between Monday, June 14, and Tuesday, June 22. It’s anticipated that reclaimed water service will be restored to customers on Wednesday, June 23.
Updates will be available by calling the reclaimed water hotline at 321-637-5477, then pressing #3.
The South Central Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant, located at 10001 N. Wickham Road in Viera, opened in the early 1990s with a maximum capacity to treat 3 million gallons per day of domestic wastewater.
However, the number of residential units began to grow. Major development companies, including Suntree Partners, the Coy A. Clark Company, (Baytree properties, among others), and the Viera Company, realized the opportunity to create new residential and commercial properties that would be served by the public sewer system.
As development activity began ramping up, it gradually became clear that the design threshold of 3 million gallons per day capacity would be inadequate even before the original planning expectation. The plant was nearing maximum capacity much sooner than originally expected.
Work that doubled the size of Brevard County’s South Central Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility was completed in December 2018.
