Rotonda History
This former water, wastewater, and reuse utility system was acquired on December 15, 2000. The acquisition added 3,700 water customers and 17,000 potential future customers with existing water main access, as well as 3,400 sewer customers and 12,700 potential future customers on lots having access to the sewer collection system. The Rotonda Water Treatment Plant was decommissioned in August 2002. Water customers are now supplied with water produced at the Peace River Manasota Regional Water Supply Treatment Plant. Through the years, the facility has been modified, upgraded, and expanded using the newest technology.

Rotonda Site
The Rotonda Water Reclamation Facility (WRF) encompasses approximately 24 acres of land, of which 12 acres are wetlands.

The Wastewater Treatment Process at Rotonda
The wastewater treatment process at the Rotonda WRF differs from most other types of treatment plants. It is a Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) style plant designed to mechanically filter wastewater and to provide an environment for biological nutrient removal (BNR). It is rated for 2.0 MGD (million gallons per day).
Filtered effluent that does not meet standards mandated by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) will automatically flow via gravity into a lined reject storage pond. A lift station returns the reject water back into the plant to be retreated.
Filtered effluent that meets or exceeds standards mandated by FDEP will then flow via gravity into a reuse storage pond or will be pumped into a reuse ground storage tank to be used as public-access reclaimed water. Reclaimed water from the Rotonda WRF provides irrigation to multiple golf courses and to a residential neighborhood. It is also used as recycle water within the plant to be used as seal water, wash water, and general cleaning water.
