What is reclaimed water?
Reclaimed water is highly treated wastewater that has been transformed into a product that generally meets standards normally applied to drinking water. In addition to the advanced treatment process, reclaimed water must meet strict Florida Department of Environmental Protection Reclaim Standards for quality before it is provided to our customers.

It also takes the wastewater usage of 3 to 5 homes to produce enough reclaim to supply one home's daily irrigation demand. Thus, there are times when reclaim is unavailable because of treatment issues or high demands.

If your irrigation system appears not to be working, please contact the Utilities Department at 407-905-3159 to check reclaim availability.
