The Restoring Impaired Waters of Charlotte Harbor project is large, multi-phased wastewater expansion project that is aimed at eliminating on-site treatment and disposal systems (OSTDS – aka septic tanks) in densely urbanized and coastal areas of Charlotte County and connecting homes to a centralized wastewater treatment system. The goal is to eliminate potential sources of pollutants entering the impaired waters of Charlotte Harbor by eliminating OSTDS. The objective is to abandon or remove failing and/or aged on-site treatment and disposal systems (aka septic tanks) for up to 300 residential homes. Other funding will be used to construct and connect homes to the central wastewater disposal system.
