In 2018, the City of Cape Coral and the City of Fort Myers entered into an interlocal agreement to construct a pipeline across the Caloosahatchee River to transmit reclaimed water from Fort Myers to Cape Coral. The reclaimed water transmission main will reduce discharges to the River while providing more reclaimed water to Cape Coral, which will help to maintain freshwater canal levels during the dry season. This water is used for irrigation purposes and for fire protection purposes.
The City of Cape Coral will install a pipeline from the Everest Water Reclamation Facility to the river entry point at Horton Park. The pipeline will be installed under the river with an exit point located in the greenspace on San Marcos in Fort Myers.
The City of Fort Myers will connect the reclaimed water pipeline from the river exit point at San Marcos in Fort Myers to their South Advanced Wastewater Treatment Facility.
