WATER DEPARTMENT: The City of Auburndale’s Water Department operates three water production/treatment facilities which supply potable water to 12,500 residential, commercial and industrial customers. Service is delivered through a network of pipping ranging in size from 2 inches to 16 inches in diameter.
WATER TREATMENT FACILITIES: The City of Auburndale has three water treatment plants which provide drinking water to our community. Our water supply is 7 deep production wells that draw water from the Floridian Aquifer. These facilities use a forced air degasification system to remove hydrogen sulfides prior to the addition of chlorine for disinfection and fluoride for dental health. These facilities distribute more than 1.6 billion gallons of water to our customers annually.
WATER DISTRIBUTION: The Water Distribution Team is responsible for installing, maintaining and repairing all water meters, main lines and values in the water distribution system. On-call water personnel work 24/7 to respond to all water emergencies.
Wastewater Treatment Facility (Allred): The Auburndale Allred WWTF, located on Recker highway, was originally built in 1955 along with the sanitary sewer system. The facility has been updated several times over the years. In 1983 the plant was converted to an extended aeration activated sludge process. Ultraviolet light is used to obtain high level disinfection. The Allred Facility has a capacity of 1.4 million gallons per day (mgd) and the treated effluent is discharged as reuse water to the Calpine Power Plant and Lake Myrtle Sports complex.
Wastewater Treatment Facility (Regional): The Auburndale Regional WWTF is located on Spring Road, West of Berkley Road. This plant is a sequencing batch reactor (SBR) facility designed to provide advanced treatment, with a current permitted capacity of 4.0 million gallons per day (mgd) and 3.57 mgd of effluent disposal/reuse capacity. A portion of the treated effluent is discharged as reuse to the TENOROC Fish and Wildlife Management Area to assist with wetlands restoration.
