WRA Creates Technical Memorandums for South Lake Regional Water Initiative


WRA has recently reached two milestones for the South Lake Regional Water Initiative (SLRWI) by completing
Technical Memorandum No. 2 РAvailable Traditional Groundwater Sources, South Lake County, Florida and Technical Memorandum No. 3 РAvailable Wastewater/Reclaimed Water, Surface Water, and Stormwater Sources, South Lake County, Florida. The SLRWI is made up of south Lake County communities including: the City of Clermont; the City of Groveland; the City of Mascotte; the City of Minneola; the Town of Montverde; Lake County Government; and Lake Utility Services, Inc. The SLRWI group was formed with the vision of intra-government/utility cooperation to solve south Lake County’s current and future water resource demands. The focus of Technical Memorandum No. 2 was the evaluation of traditional groundwater sources within south Lake County. The document provides an overview of the hydrogeology, specifically for this portion of the county, regional existing water use and sources, and a brief summary of recent Central Florida Water Initiative groundwater modeling evaluations. The focus of Technical Memorandum No. 3 was the evaluation of non-traditional water supply sources within south Lake County, specifically surface water sources, stormwater sources, and wastewater/reclaimed water sources. The memorandum provides an overview of: the surface water hydrology, specifically for south Lake County; a regional review of non-traditional water supply sources, specifically surface water sources, stormwater sources, and wastewater/reclaimed water sources; and provides a case study regarding a hypothetical move from septic tanks to integrated sewer connections.
