Update 11/30/20: The Pasco County Utilities (PCU) Engineering & Contract Management Department will soon bring reclaimed irrigation water to the Wesbridge and Chapel Chase communities in Wesley Chapel. Construction on the much-anticipated projects is estimated to take six months. Most work will occur outside the developments along Boyette Road, with no anticipated impact to local traffic.
Both communities have irrigation systems that are being fed by drinking water, with usage charged at current potable water rates. The new systems will provide lower-cost, reclaimed irrigation water to the communities while helping conserve drinking water. Bills will automatically reflect the new water source with no action required by residents.
“Wesbridge and Chapel Chase were originally built with separate potable and irrigation pipe networks,” said Utilities Engineering Director Charles J. Cullen. “This design supports a smooth transition to cost-saving reclaimed irrigation and enhances our long-term conservation efforts as we keep pace with growth.”
Residents should anticipate an approximate 8-hour temporary outage of irrigation service when the final connection is made. To minimize impacts, this work will be scheduled outside of normal watering hours. Disconnection and reconnection will not affect drinking water services inside the home at any time
