City of Oviedo Utilities currently creates 1 million gallons of reclaimed water and has a contract with Seminole County for up to 3 million gallons per day of reclaimed water. Reclaimed water is treated wastewater that is ideal for irrigation. Using reclaimed water in Oviedo reduces groundwater withdrawals and helps recharge the groundwater drinking water aquifer to help create a sustainable drinking water system for the community.
The treatment process for both water and reclaimed water irrigation quality meets all of the requirements established by the federal, state and local regulatory agencies. Please see the most recent Annual Water Quality Reports for more information and the most up to date water quality test results.
