Englewood Water District
The District encompasses approximately 44.5 square miles in Southern Sarasota County and Western Charlotte County. There are four (4) fresh water and two (2) brackish water wellfields. This raw water is treated at either the lime softening treatment plant or the reverse osmosis treatment plant. The finished waters are mixed and sent into the distribution system.
The District also operates a 3.0 MGD Water Reclamation Facility to take care of the sanitary sewer needs of the area. As of November 2008 82% of all water customers also receive sewer service.
A small group of members from the Englewood Chamber of Commerce formed a "water committee" in 1955 to look into the water "situation." During the next 4 years they had the perseverance, determination, and dedication to make the Englewood Water District a reality. They fought the odds, and the obstacles, because they saw the need to develop a high-quality, clean water system that would provide for the present and future Englewood. As they moved forward in their efforts, they learned the water and sanitary system could be owned and managed by the people of Englewood and not an outside source. They realized not only would residents' health conditions be jeopardized without a water and sanitary system, but also the Lemon Bay environment.
