BACKGROUND ON THE POMPANO BEACH OASIS PROGRAM
The city saves Broward County treated wastewater, slated for ocean outfall, by diverting it into the reuse plant. At the plant, this water is further filtered, disinfected and tested before being sent to irrigation customers. The Oasis program allows us to reduce our dependence on drinking water for irrigation, protects our water supply against saltwater intrusion and helps the City save money on additional plant capacity driven upgrades while meeting future drinking water demands.
BACKGROUND ON POMPANO BEACH PUBLIC ART PROGRAM
In 2012, the Pompano Beach City Commission adopted a public art ordinance to “enhance the aesthetic and cultural value of the city by including works of art on public properties within the city.” The City Commission seeks “benefits of public art that are both aesthetic and economic.” For more information on what is planned over the next ten year period, please refer to the Public Art Masterplan that is located at
