Cudjoe Regional

Centralized Wastewater Collection System and Treatment Plant – The Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority (FKAA), in conjunction with Monroe County, has awarded contracts for the Cudjoe Regional Centralized Wastewater Collection System and Treatment Plant. The project is expected to be underway by Spring of 2013. This wastewater collection system will be constructed in the Lower Florida Keys, from Mile Marker (MM) 17 to MM 33, and will provide service to Lower Sugarloaf Key, Upper Sugarloaf Key, Cudjoe Key, Summerland Key, Ramrod Key, Little Torch Key and Big Pine Key. The proposed Wastewater Treatment Plant will have a design capacity of 0.96 Million Gallons per Day (MGD), and will use a five-stage Bardenpho system capable of meeting the rigorous Advanced Wastewater Treat (AWT) Standards, mandated by the State of Florida.


Decentralized Wastewater (Onsite System) Program Some homes within the Lower Keys are unable to be serviced by the Centralized Wastewater System, due to engineering and economic limitations. These properties are referred to as decentralized areas and are required to meet Best Available Technology (BAT) Standards, mandated by the State of Florida. In an effort to help homeowners in these decentralized areas the FKAA has secured federal grant funding, through the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, to design, construct and operate On-Site Wastewater Nutrient Removal Systems (OWNRS) on decentralized homeowners' properties. This voluntary program is currently in the planning phase and future updates will be included on this website, as they become available.
