Lift Station Division

The Lift Station Division is responsible for the operation and maintenance of the 70 wastewater pumping (or "lift") stations in the City of Casselberry wastewater collection system. Each lift station collects wastewater from the gravity (flows downhill) collection system and pumps the wastewater through pipes called force mains to the treatment facility. Each lift station has a storage tank called a wetwell that holds the wastewater until it is pumped. 

Six of these lift stations pump into force mains of the City of Orlando's Iron Bridge Road Wastewater Treatment Facility. Those stations and force mains are owned by the South Seminole and North Orange County Wastewater Transmission Authority (SSNOCWTA). 



Water Production Division
The Water Production Division is responsible for the operation of the water treatment and distribution system. The City's potable water system consists of three water treatment plants, six ground storage tanks, three elevated storage tanks and a water distribution network of various size piping.

Each treatment plant has three wells with a production capacity of approximately 19.4 million gallons per day (mgd). The drinking water supply for the City of Casselberry is the Floridan Aquifer. The water storage capacity is approximately 3.35 million gallons. The average daily water flow is about 5.0 mgd.

Treatment at each plant includes aeration, addition of corrosion control inhibitor, and disinfection. At times, the groundwater may exhibit some odor. This odor is created by the presence of hydrogen sulfide in the aquifer. The sulfide odor is not considered a health hazard and the aeration treatment strips the odor from the water.

Water Reclamation Division
Treatment of wastewater (sewage) is an essential service for a densely populated area such as the City of Casselberry. The wastewater treatment facility, also known as the Water Reclamation Facility, is permitted to treat 2.20 million gallons per day (mgd).

The wastewater treatment process consists of primary (screening & grit removal), secondary (biological), tertiary (filtration), disinfection, and further processing for land application and the production of reclaimed water.

Pre-treatment Program    
The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) requires pre-treatment of commercial and industrial wastes to reduce pollutants which can pass through or interfere with the wastewater treatment process.

The City has adopted an industrial/commercial pre-treatment ordinance requiring identification of pre-treatment requirements and possible permitting. Wastewater Discharge Permits are issued by the City's Environmental Coordinator.
