Located in the beautiful Rehoboth Beach area of Delaware, Baywood is a full service, public golf course and residential community. The Sheaffer System treats wastewater from the community and the clubhouse, and the reclaimed water is used to irrigate the golf course. Sheaffer International is currently designing an expansion of this system to accommodate expansion of the community and the golf course. See http://www.baywoodgreens.com/ for more information about the community.

The 109 acres of open space preserved on the property serves as woodland, field, wildfowl ponds, wetlands, and restored native wildflower prairie. Backyards of the large homes on small lots open onto large green spaces. Natural swales, ponds, and re-created wetlands replace pipes for stormwater management.
Reclaimed water, with its dissolved nutrients, is beneficially reused to irrigate and fertilize open space on the Fox Mill site. The discharge of pollutants into Mill Creek is eliminated with the Sheaffer System™, assuring long-run compliance with Illinois standards.

Heritage Commons is a retail shopping center developed by Southstar Development in Thompson’s Station, Tennessee. Sheaffer International designed the system for Southstar and now operates the facility for the Town of Thompson’s Station. Wastewater is treated in the aerated cells, stored, filtered through a disc media filter, disinfected, and spray irrigated on the property.
Mill Creek Geneva, IL
The Mill Creek Development in Geneva, IL, successfully preserved 40% open space on its property by centralizing its high density areas within the interior of the site. Golf links and tall prairie grasses intertwine to create a beautiful landscape for the homeowners at Mill Creek. By eliminating the need for septic systems, the Mill Creek Sheaffer System™ lies at the heart of these amenities.

Reclaimed water from the Saddlebrook Farms Sheaffer System is beneficially reused as irrigation for the adjacent 159-acre farm. In addition, an ecologically sound storm water management system designed by Sheaffer—with a network of shallow grassy swales and storm water detention areas—stores, filters, and treats polluted urban runoff on-site.
OPERATING SINCE: 1989
The homes at Willowmere are situated around a central open space that includes lakes, natural wetlands, and parks. Reclaimed water is filtered in two sand beds prior to irrigation to soccer fields, where the nutrients from the reclaimed water nourish the nearly five acres of grass.

Wynstone is a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course community in North Barrington, IL. The reclaimed water from the Wynstone Sheaffer System is mixed with fresh water and used to irrigate the golf course. Homeowners adjacent to the reclamation cells testify to the fact that the system is odorless. Ducks (pictured above) seem to particularly enjoy the ponds at Wynstone.
