FPL Miami-Dade Clean Water Recovery Center

FPL is partnering with Miami-Dade County to develop a state-of-the-art, advanced reclaimed water treatment facility called the FPL Miami-Dade Clean Water Recovery Center (CWRC).

The facility will further treat and reuse up to 15 million gallons per day of reclaimed water from Miami-Dade County. FPL will use 100% of that reclaimed water to cool the natural gas plant at FPL’s Turkey Point Clean Energy Center.

A win-win for FPL customers, Miami-Dade County and the Sunshine State, the CWRC will:

  • Increase resiliency at the Turkey Point Clean Energy Center, which helps provide power for all FPL customers
  • Help Miami-Dade County meet the Ocean Outfall Mandate – which set a goal to eliminate the regular discharge of treated wastewater into the ocean by 2025
  • Provide a cost-effective way to reuse and recycle treated wastewater that would otherwise be discarded
  • Conserve Floridan Aquifer groundwater at the Turkey Point site – a precious resource for all Floridians

“The reclaimed water project at Turkey Point by Florida Power & Light provides an opportunity to switch their source of water for industrial use from potable to reclaimed, leaving more water supply for human use and for the natural systems.”
