Reclaimed Production
Wastewater is treated at the R. Dwayne Huffman Reclaimed Water Plant, which is located at the northeast corner of Oak Street and Spruce Creek Road. This plant capacity is 12 million gallons per day. Reclaimed water is highly treated wastewater that can be used for irrigation or discharged back into the Halifax River.

The Reclaimed Water Division is responsible for the efficient and effective operation of advanced secondary treatment of sewage collected from the City of Port Orange, Ponce Inlet, Daytona Beach Shores and a portion of the unincorporated surrounding area. This facility is also a manufacturing plant for reuse or reclaimed water, which is distributed to an increasing number of locations throughout the City. Port Orange has been a leader in the development of a City-wide reclaimed water system for irrigation. Many residents and businesses presently enjoy the benefits of the reclaimed water system, particularly since this type of water is much less expensive than irrigating with potable water.

The operators are also responsible for the operating of a remote 3 million gallon reclaimed water tank and pumping facility located near Summer Trees subdivision. The plant is manned twenty-four hours per day. All operators are licensed by the state and required to undergo continuing education requirements in order to maintain their licensure.

The wastewater treatment plant may be contacted at 386-506-5785.

Reclaim FAQs
What is reclaimed water and is it safe?
Reclaimed water involves taking what we once considered to be wastewater, giving it a high degree of treatment, and using the resulting high quality reclaimed water for a new beneficial use. The City of Port Orange uses its reclaimed water for irrigation of residential lawns, golf courses, athletic fields and road medians. Extensive treatment and disinfection ensure that public health and the quality of the environment are protected.

Why doesn't everyone have access to reclaimed water?
There simply isn't enough of it to supply everyone. It takes five wastewater customers to supply one reclaimed water customer.
