Babcock Ranch, America’s first solar-powered hometown, was founded on core principles of sustainability and eco-responsibility. Now we’re proud to announce that our Babcock Ranch Water Reclamation Facility (WRF), operated by Town & Country Utilities, has been recognized with several top environmental protection awards for water reuse and water quality.
The Florida Water Environment Association presented the Babcock Ranch WRF with both the prestigious 2019 David W. York Award honoring outstanding water reuse projects in Florida and the important Earle B. Phelps Award, recognizing wastewater treatment facilities that have maintained the highest removal of pollutants in transforming wastewater into “reclaimed water” for responsible irrigation.
Additionally, Babcock Ranch Water Utilities received the 2018 Domestic Plant Operations Excellence Award for Drinking Water Plant Operations from the Florida Department of Environment Protection.
Living a better life at Babcock Ranch means knowing that we are protecting our beautiful eco-friendly landscape and natural habitats for all to enjoy.
All required regulatory testing (two consecutive days of
communitywide sampling) has been completed with passing results
from an independent laboratory and, effective immediately, it is no
longer necessary to boil your drinking water.
