The City of Apopka is pleased to announce a new program to help protect and restore our iconic springs. In collaboration with the St. Johns River Water Management District, Apopka has obtained funding assistance to replace septic tanks with a new treatment technology called Distributed Sewer. The service is equivalent to sewer treatment but doesn't require a piped connection to a central treatment plant. Instead, the treatment is provided inside the unit and the fully treated water is safely discharged underground. This technology has been rigorously tested right here in Central Florida, and the treatment units are manufactured in Florida.
Interested homeowners who sign up for this program can have their existing septic tank removed and replaced with a new treatment unit by the City. Once installed, the treatment unit will be serviced and maintained by the City.
What is Distributed Sewer?
Distributed Sewer is a new method to providing sewer treatment to homeowners anywhere, regardless of location, and without the need to connect the home to a central plant through pipes.
