The Village of Islamorada Central Sewer System will serve Village of Islamorada residents and businesses on Lower Matecumbe, Upper Matecumbe, Windley Key and Plantation Key. The collection system is owned by the Village of Islamorada with the design, construction and operation managed by Layne Christensen, known locally as Reynolds Water Islamorada. The collection system is a combination of vacuum and low pressure with sewage conveyed to the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment Facility ("Facility"). The Facility is located in Key Largo. The Facility is currently permitted to treat 2.3 million gallons of wastewater daily with disposal of treated effluent to a single Class I deep injection well and two backup Class V shallow injection wells. The collection system is currently under construction, and the Key Largo Facility will be expanded to accommodate the additional flow from the Village of Islamorada. For more details on the Village of Islamorada Central Sewer System, please visit the Reynolds Construction, LLC site. For additional information on the Facility, please visit the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District website.
