South Cross Bayou Water Reclamation Facility is a permitted 33 million gallon per day (MGD) Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant serving South Pinellas County. We use physical, biological, and chemical processes to recover resources from wastewater: reclaimed water for irrigation, biosolids for fertilizer pellets, and gas for renewable energy. South Cross Bayou is home to Pinellas County Utilities’ 5,400 square foot Public Education Center, which includes a full time staff dedicated to fulfilling Utilities’ vision for public education.
Our approximately 90 minute tour begins with an introductory presentation, followed by a tram-assisted tour of our 35 acre site. To ensure the safety of all visitors, we request that guests wear flat, close toed shoes/sneakers or work boots which will not slide off your feet. A majority of the tour will take place outside; we recommend guests wear hats/sunglasses/sunscreen, and loose fitting athletic type clothing, and bring a drink with a lid, such as bottled water.
The tour is free for FSEA members. If you are not yet a member or need to renew you can sign-up as a non-member and pay the $50 membership fee to attend. This will give you membership for one year.
