Minimized water usage request from Seminole County

Seminole County has experienced a large amount of power outages due to Hurricane Irma. Unfortunately these power outages have left the majority of the County’s lift stations without electricity. County staff is working diligently to pump down these lift stations using portable generators.

In order to help prevent sewer backups the County is requesting that water usage be minimized at this time. If possible, please limit the use of washing machines and dishwashers. Water should be used for essential functions only.

The County thanks you for your help in this time of need. Another notification will be provided when the minimized usage has been lifted.
