Cocoa Beach accomplished its US EPA required upgrade to Advanced Wastewater Treatment (AWT) status in 2013 by improving nutrient reduction in normal operation. It recently completed an additional $6.6M project to improve its Reclaimed Water treatment during storms by improving inflow handling equipment, upgrading internal piping, replacing effluent sand filters with a special, high efficiency fabric system, installing new sludge concentrators and upgrading the plant electrical system including adding an automatic transfer switch for a second backup generator on site.
This major projects was financed by its rate-payers (20 year repayment of a State Clean Water Loan of $4-5M), a $1.5M grant from St Johns River Water Management District and $945K from the Save Our Indian River Lagoon (SOIRL) Trust Fund.
