About Environmental Services

Environmental Services is dedicated to maintaining the quality environment throughout the City of Edgewater through all the divisions and the 79 people it employs.

 

Alan R. Thomas Water Treatment Plant Processing drinking water to the highest quality possible and certify compliance with the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s Safe Drinking Water Act and regulations from the State of Florida Department of Health so residents can feel confident when turning on their taps is the responsibility of the Water Treatment Plant Operators.
Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant Treating wastewater to ensure compliance with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the United States Environmental Protection Agency is the duty of the Wastewater Treatment Plant. This plant is also in charge of ensuring the safest reclaimed water is delivered to the residents for irrigation purposes.
