Deputy Director for Public Utilities - Greg Dobbins
The City of Eustis Wastewater Department is made up of 4 inter-related programs:
Collections is the program devoted to collecting and pumping the wastewater to the Treatment plant. It consists of 43 pumping stations, which are at various locations around the city.
The Treatment program is next. It is made up of the tanks, pumps, blowers and other equipment at the plant sites. There are now two (2) plant sites, the one at 801 Bates Avenue and the Eastern site at Cardinal Lane which is off of State Rt. 44 East of the city. The Bates Ave. site has a capacity of 2.4 million gallons a day. The Eastern plant has a capacity of 700,000 gallons a day.
Following the Treatment program are the Solids Disposal and Liquid Disposal programs. The solids are hauled to a residuals management facility for further treatment and disposal. The liquid is disinfected and becomes public access reuse and is used for safe irrigation in some residential areas, ball parks and golf courses.
The last program is the Laboratory. The lab does most of the testing and reporting required by D.E.P, St Johns Water Management District and other regulatory agencies who have governing authority over the Wastewater Department.
