Donald C. Tillman (DCT) Water Reclamation Plant is the home of a beautiful Japanese Garden. It was part of the City's vision to create a world class treatment plant that would not only treat wastewater but also provide a sanctuary where the public could enjoy the peaceful surroundings while learning about water reclamation.
The 6.5 acre garden was designed by world-famous designer Dr. Koichi Kawara and dedicated in 1984. The garden is irrigated with effluent from Tillman, and the 2.75 acre lake is filled with the plant's treated water.
More than 1,000 visitors come to the Gardens each month. Visit the Garden's web site to learn more and to make arrangements for a tour.
