Not only does the Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment Plant reduce strain on local surface water for potable water production by utilizing a previously untapped source of brackish water, but Oldsmar has designed and constructed the ROWTP in accordance with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards. In May 2013, the ROWTP earned LEED Silver Certification by the United States Green Building Council, thus becoming the 1st LEED certified ROWTP in the State of Florida and the 2nd in the United States.
