Layton / Long Key Wastewater District
Located at mile marker 68 in Long Key the Norman Anderson Water Quality Improvement Facility was placed online in 2006 thanks in large part to the efforts of this progressive small city. Currently serving the city limits as well as the Long Key State Park, the collection system is currently being expanded to include properties on both the east and west end of Long Key. When the expansion is complete it is expected the facility will treat 35,000 gallons of wastewater per day and remove approximately 95% of nutrients (total nitrogen, total phosphorous, total suspended solids and biological oxygen demand) prior to discharge into the injection well.

Sewer Connection Funding Assistance

Septic Tank to Cistern Conversion Option
One of the benefits of connecting to the Central Wastewater System is the opportunity it provides to convert your septic tank into a cistern. For slightly more than the cost of septic tank abandonment, you can utilize your tank to capture rainwater for use in landscape watering, car washing, boat washing, motor flushing, and pressure washing. Rebates up to $500 are available.
