Serving Gainesville since 1930
GRU's Main Street Water Reclamation Facility, originally built in 1930, was remodeled and expanded in the 1950s to meet the growing needs of the Gainesville community. The plant discharges high quality effluent to the Sweetwater Branch, which flows across Paynes Prairie and enters Alachua Sink. Currently, it serves residents in the southeast and northeast areas and is permitted to treat 7.5 million gallons of water per day.
