Highland Beach, Florida
Water Division

The Town of Highland Beach owns and operates its own Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment facility. The Town’s raw water supply comes from a 1,000-foot well, drawing water from the Floridan aquifer. Treated water is stored in a 300,000-gallon above ground storage tank and a 500,000-gallon elevated storage tank before eventually being released into the Town’s water distribution system. Approximately 1.3 million gallons of water are treated by the Town’s Water Plant each day.

Additional Information
The sewer system is also owned and maintained by the Town, which includes over eight miles of sewer lines and five sewer pumping stations. Wastewater is pumped to Delray Beach, where is it transported further to the South Palm Beach County Wastewater Regional Treatment Plant. There it receives tertiary treatment and is pumped into the ocean through Delray Beach outfall, terminating at an 80-foot depth approximately one mile offshore.

The Town of Highland Beach currently services approximately 560 utility customers. Water meters are read every other month and residents are billed for two months of service at a time. Billing for Utility Services is handled by the Town’s Finance Department.

The Water Treatment Plant is operated 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week, and is staffed by seven full-time employees.
