Today, the issue is not only protecting water sources, but also finding & permitting them.  Schreuder, Inc. provides cost-effective, creative & customized solutions to water use/reuse & environmental issues facing you.


Water Resource Development

& Water Use Permitting (WUP)

Schreuder, Inc. is assisting Lennar Homes in renewing an existing WUP for an 18-hole golf course and the installation of 19 separate irrigation wells for individual residential communities within the same development.

Heritage Pines - WUP

The Heritage Pines community is located in the northwest corner of Pasco County, approximately one-quarter mile east of U.S.-19 on County Line Road.  The existing WUP for the Heritage Pines Golf & Country Club was approaching its expiration date and required renewal.  The defined irrigation areas also contain common areas, which were expanded by more than 13 acres.  Before the WUP renewal process began, Pasco County was incorporated as part of the Northern Tampa Bay Water Use Caution Area (NTBWUCA).  Pasco County supplies reclaimed water to Heritage Pines, which is the primary water source for the golf course.  Heritage Pines has one 10-inch groundwater irrigation well to supplement the irrigation supply.

The use of reclaimed water by Heritage Pines and the inclusion of the development in a water use caution area presented unique challenges to WUP renewal.  Schreuder, Inc. was successful in renewing the WUP and generated special language for the WUP conditions that allowed Heritage Pines to utilize groundwater supplies without having to participate in lengthy time-consuming reporting conditions.

Heritage Pines Irrigation Wells

The Heritage Pines community is located in the northwest corner of Pasco County, approximately one-quarter mile east of U.S.-19 on County Line Road.  The Heritage Pines development contains approximately 18 individual villages.  To irrigate lawns and village common areas has meant relying upon rainfall, reclaimed water, and potable water to meet irrigation demands.  Reclaimed water was the primary water source.  However, Pasco County could not guarantee a consistent supply of water to meet the demand, potable water is too expensive, and the area seems to be located in a rainfall deficit area.  Lastly, the use of groundwater to irrigate all of the villages would mean applying for a new WUP.

 Schreuder, Inc. provided an alternative to meet the irrigation demands while avoiding having to acquire a WUP or rely upon potable water.  Schreuder, Inc. recommended that each village be incorporated as a separate entity and then designed a water supply for each village.  This meant the installing 19 irrigation wells for 11 villages.  This approach provided more water than a WUP, guaranteed a consistent supply, and provided individual village control over irrigation schedules.
