Aquatic Systems Awarded 4G Ranch Management Contract

4G Ranch Aerial ViewLargest Groundwater Recharge Wetland in the World. 

This recently completed $13 million reclaimed water project is intended to recharge Pasco County’s sinking ground water table and sustainably restore wetlands and natural habitats throughout the region that were degraded from years of well pumping due to housing and commercial development and drought conditions. 4G Ranch has 15 water sites or “cells” spread across 176 acres in Land O’Lakes, Florida. Each cell created is a different size and capacity and is landscaped with beneficial native species. Five million gallons of reclaimed water is distributed to the cells each day.

To help with the management of exotic invasive plants within the wetlands, Pasco County turned to Aquatic Systems for their scientific knowledge and extensive field experience with managing these unique ecosystems at other, similar sites throughout Florida.
