The division is responsible for the preparation and submittal of reports to comply with federal, state and local requirements (such as the Safe Drinking Water Act) and to ensure the reliable production of high-quality, safe, potable drinking water for our citizens. The division provides raw water from two regional wellfields to five large users and to Broward County retail operations as well as operates two retail wellfields that supply water to the County’s 1A and 2A water treatment plants.

The division operates a reclaimed water facility, which provides reclaimed water to both industrial and retail customers. In addition, WWOD operates a state-certified laboratory, a nationally-recognized Industrial Pretreatment Program (IPP) and provides a critical environmental service through operating and maintaining a Septage Receiving Facility.
WWOD’s highlights include:
- North Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant (NRWWTP) effluent ocean outfall nutrient reduction goals continue to exceed those established by the State of Florida in response to the ocean outfall legislation. Section 2 - Administration and Four-Log (99.99%) virus removal infrastructure construction was completed at 2A
- Water Treatment Facility to increase levels of disinfection. This facilitates applying for and receiving four-log treatment credit for Ground Water Rule compliance.
- 3A Re-pump facility was transitioned from gaseous chlorine to sodium hypochlorite.
- Master Lift Station 440 was put in service after a complete mechanical, electrical, and SCADA rehabilitation. The SCADA system was integrated into the existing system until the District 4 SCADA project is completed.
