Beginning in 2015, the City Longwood was awarded grant funding in partnership with the St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD) and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) to implement a septic abandonment project in the South
Longwood area. The project's purpose was to decommission existing on-site sewage treatment and disposal systems (OSTDS/septic tanks) and connect these properties to centralized sewer collection systems. Since this initial project, the City has continued to receive grant funding for eight (8) additional projects. Learn more on the E Longwood Phase 2-6 Facility Plan Map (PDF).
Remote Meter Replacement Program
The City’s Meter Replacement Program with automated meter reading intends to provide efficient customer service and a more predictable meter reading schedule. This program provides proactive notification of leaks or increased consumption patterns and information to help resolve high bill complaints. Existing and new water meters will be replaced and connected to a radio transmitter to collect meter readings remotely.
The2022 Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) (PDF) contains the latest report as required by state and federal regulations on the source and quality of our potable water. (This report is based on water quality testing results from January 1 through December 31 each calendar year.)
811 is the national call-before-you-dig phone number. Anyone who plans to dig should call 811 or go to the Florida state 811 Center before digging to request that the approximate location of buried utilities be marked with paint or flags so that you don’t unintentionally dig into an underground utility line.
