Reclaimed Water Pipe Break - MAY 17 UPDATE

broken pipe

MAY 17 UPDATE:  City of Oviedo Public Works has been in contact with Seminole County who is continuing to work to repair the reclaimed water line. The parts to repair the line have been delivered to the County.   At this time, it may be two more weeks without the reclaimed water line working.  There is still no estimated day/time that the repair will happen.  As soon as the repairs are made, the City will update residents on this news page, as well as, all social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter and NextDoor (@CityofOviedo)

If you are not following our Social Media pages, we encourage our residents to sign up and follow.  Below is previous information posted about the water line break.  We apologize for any inconvenience the water main break has caused.  We are working closely with Seminole County to keep our effected residents informed.


APRIL 17 UPDATE:  Our Public Works Division has been advised this line will remain out of operation for at least another 30 days starting April 17th..  We do not have an estimated day of repairs yet from Seminole County.


Due to a pipe break in a reclaimed water line in Seminole County, the supply to the City of Oviedo has been taken offline.

Details of the damage have not been provided.  

The City regularly supplements its own reclaimed water supply with reclaimed water from Seminole County during dry weather periods as customer demand can sometimes outstrip the City’s own production rate of reclaimed water.  Due to the County’s pipe failure, City customers may experience periods of low reclaimed water service pressure and reduced service supply during high demand periods.  

This will be especially noticeable during dry weather periods which the City is experiencing right now.  Residents are asked to adhere to County's watering day and time restrictions and be considerate of private irrigation system watering time durations, in order to conserve the City’s available reclaimed water supply.  An estimate of the County’s pipe repair has not yet been provided to the City. 

 If your water pressure has dropped or stopped, please call the City first before calling a technician to your house.
