Water is too precious to use only once
Kanapaha Botanical Gardens Project
We launched our first water-reuse project at Florida’s second largest botanical gardens. We provide reclaimed water for irrigation and the gardens’ water feature.
Chapman’s Pond and Nature Trails
Our largest reclaimed water project is built on approximately 66 acres in southwest Gainesville. The park’s water features include ponds, streams, waterfalls and fountains – all supplied by reclaimed water.
TREEO Center Ecosystem
At the University of Florida’s Center for Training, Research and Education for Environmental Occupations, GRU designed a reclaimed water stream for the reflecting pond to remove algae and enhance its natural beauty.
City of Gainesville Depot Park
GRU is partnering with Gainesville Public Works, the Gainesville Community Redevelopment Agency and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to clean up this former industrial site. Depot Park will include walking paths, boardwalks and an outdoor amphitheatre. Native vegetation will be used to create a natural North Florida wetland landscape. Reclaimed water will augment the park’s ponds that will naturally treat stormwater from downtown.
Water is too precious to use only once – GRU reclaims it, and the community reuses it.
