In an effort to help alleviate the growing over-demand of the Florida Aquifer system, the City of Oviedo operates with water restriction requirements, as well as educates the public on ways to conserve water.
Although it may at times be somewhat of an inconvenience to residents, watering restrictions are not imposed without an extreme cause or need. Everyday, more and more demand is placed on the Florida Aquifer system to supply more and more water to the residents of Florida. If left unchecked and unregulated, the Florida Aquifer system would be exhausted to the point of running out of fresh water and causing salt water intrusion.

Conservation outside is only half the battle! It's what's inside that matters too.
Living in Florida, we may tend to think that the only water wasting going on is in the garden or lawn. However, there is often water waste occurring indoors as well. Fixing leaks and replacing old plumbing fixtures with water-saving devices could save a family of four about 30,000 gallons of water each year (about 2 water bills worth of usage)!
The City also utilizes a state-of-the-art automated meter reading system, which stores historical water usage in valuable hourly increments to help in addressing high water usage inquiries from our customers. Call 407-971-5691 to request a copy of the Automated Meter Reading System - Irrigation Schedules document. The meter also has a visual potential leak indicator for detecting potential leaks.
H2Oviedo Water Conservation Incentive Program Following through on their commitment to conserve water and reduce potable water consumption throughout Oviedo, the City Council formally established the H2Oviedo Water Conservation Incentive Program. The incentive approach is considered to be a “win-win” environmental initiative as residents can learn new ways to reduce water consumption and save money in the process. The incentive program is available for residents with or without irrigation systems and has been designed so as not to conflict with permitting procedures of homeowner associations. Partner with us as we strive to reduce water consumption!
The City of Oviedo is seeking applicants for the award winning H2Oviedo conservation incentive program.
