Yankee Lake Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility
The Yankee Lake Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility is a state-of-the-art system enabling the preservation of a 3000 acre pristine wildlife area along the St. Johns River. The system includes natural wetland effluent disposal, reclaimed irrigation, and Rapid Infiltration Basins (RIBs). Along with this system, the Division is working hand-in-hand with other divisions to utilize the land for other uses, including over a 1000 acres to the Natural Lands program for hiking and trails.
Seminole County is also working to preserve the habitat of the Florida Scrub Jay on this site.
