The City’s Stormwater staff serves the citizens of Oviedo by effectively managing, maintaining, protecting, and improving the public stormwater drainage system to prevent damage to life and property from storms, floods, and hurricanes. We also work to protect the water quality and safeguard our natural resources for all generations.
The City of Oviedo can provide flood proofing advice for older homes built prior to current building code standards, or homes that have a higher flooding risk due to the proximity of special flood hazard areas. To inquire if a property is in a special flood hazard area or if an elevation certificate is available, please email Amanda Kortus, Stormwater Coordinator.
The City of Oviedo is pro-active in local watershed monitoring, such as monthly lake levels and water quality. For more information, please visit the Seminole County Wateratlas website.
All properties, regardless of location, can flood. Where is rains, it can flood. Most basic homeowners insurance policies do not cover flooding, even from roof damage. Check your policy to ensure you are covered, even if your lender does not require flood insurance coverage. Most preferred risk policies (outside of a special flood hazard area) have affordable premiums.
Introducing anything other than water into the City’s storm system, ponds, or ditches is considered illicit dumping and subject to punitive action by law. Please report any illicit dumping to Public Works at 407-971-5681. Provide pictures, if possible. You may remain anonymous if you so desire.
