Brevard County Utilities Implementing Plan For Fair Reclaimed Water Distribution
By Space Coast Daily // August 9, 2016
will allow fair access to all customers
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Due to the extremely dry weather conditions, demand for reclaimed water is very high, which causes low pressure in the system and a smaller supply.
In order to maximize the availability of the reclaimed water, Brevard County Utilities is implementing a plan that will allow fair access to all customers.
Beginning immediately, customers on the east side of Interstate 95 will have access to reclaimed water on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 4 a.m. to 8 a.m. Customers on the west side of I-95 will have access to reclaimed water on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 4 a.m. to 8 a.m.
Reclaimed water will not be available on Sundays in order to allow the reclamation facility time to recharge its supply. Please set your irrigation timers to coincide with these days and times. Each zone should be adjusted to irrigate for the shortest period to maintain live lawn conditions.
Any maintenance to your irrigation system would also need to be scheduled during these times.
Regular updates will be given on the Reuse Hotline 321-637-5477.
The goal of the Utilities Department is for the reclaimed water to maintain pressure and be available for the full 4 hours each day in each area. By following the guidelines above, we believe that will be the case.
However, reclaimed water is only available for as long as the supply lasts. It is possible for the reclaimed water to run out before 8 a.m. if the demand is greater than the supply.
The reclaimed water fee of $6 is an availability fee and not a guarantee. Access of reclaimed water to the golf courses has been shut off and all excess water in our reclamation facility’s ponds has been used. With your cooperation, this plan should benefit everyone until wet weather conditions return.
