Media Release- Hernando Co.

(Brooksville, FL) The Hernando County Utilities Department (HCUD) has redirected wastewater flows from the Brookridge Wastewater Treatment Facility, located at 8279 Grove Road in Brooksville, to the Glen Water Reclamation Facility, located at 11354 Hexam Road in Brooksville. This redirect is in an effort to regionalize the County’s wastewater treatment facilities and reduce operating costs.
The decommissioned Brookridge Wastewater Treatment Facility is scheduled for demolition beginning June 2020. The demolition work, which will include the removal of all existing plant structures and pavement, is expected to be complete by January 2021. The selected contractor for this project is PAW Demolition.
This update is part of several planned improvements to the HCUD wastewater system intended to better position the County to serve current and future growth within the HCUD service area and ensure the utility will meet a higher level of treatment required in the Weeki Wachee spring shed. HCUD does not anticipate this project to disrupt water or sewer service for its customers during this timeframe.
Contact HCUD at (352) 754-4037 for more information.
