The Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District was created by the State of Florida in June 2002 to construct a wastewater treatment system for certain areas of the Upper Keys. By performing advanced wastewater treatment, KLWTD, an independent utility district, protects and improves the quality of our nearshore surface waters.

Cesspits and septic tanks in the Keys provide little treatment of domestic wastewater in porous limestone and cause untreated, nutrient-rich wastewater to be discharged into our waters. The untreated water from these cesspits and septic tanks is a main source of nutrients and human pathogens in our ground and surface waters. Water quality issues from wastewater discharge have been documented in residential canals and in nearshore waters. Without reform of our wastewater discharge, the Keys' ecosystem may be destroyed. KLWTD is dedicated to restoring the ecological balance of the Keys' ecosystem and maintaining the Keys' economy by controlling the nutrient levels of our waters.

Here you will find a constant source of up to date information on wastewater treatment implementation, important dates, and public meetings.
