A bill to be entitled
2An act relating to sewage disposal facilities; amending s.
3403.086, F.S.; requiring facilities contributing domestic
4wastewater to facilities discharging through ocean
5outfalls to meet specified reuse requirements if they
6divert such flows from the facilities discharging through
7ocean outfalls; providing that such reuse is credited to
8the facilities discharging through ocean outfalls;
9providing an effective date.
11Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Florida:
13     Section 1.  Paragraph (i) is added to subsection (9) of
14section 403.086, Florida Statutes, to read:
15     403.086  Sewage disposal facilities; advanced and secondary
16waste treatment.-
17     (9)  The Legislature finds that the discharge of domestic
18wastewater through ocean outfalls wastes valuable water supplies
19that should be reclaimed for beneficial purposes to meet public
20and natural systems demands. The Legislature also finds that
21discharge of domestic wastewater through ocean outfalls
22compromises the coastal environment, quality of life, and local
23economies that depend on those resources. The Legislature
24declares that more stringent treatment and management
25requirements for such domestic wastewater and the subsequent,
26timely elimination of ocean outfalls as a primary means of
27domestic wastewater discharge are in the public interest.
28     (i)  A facility that diverts wastewater flow from a
29facility that discharges domestic wastewater through an ocean
30outfall to which it had previously contributed wastewater flow
31is required to meet the 60-percent reuse requirement of
32paragraph (c), and that reuse shall be credited to the facility
33discharging domestic wastewater through an ocean outfall.
34     Section 2.  This act shall take effect July 1, 2010.
