Reclaimed Water Operations

The Reclaimed Water division is responsible for providing distribution and storage of reclaimed water to our residential and commercial customers to replenish groundwater and preserve drinking water sources for potable use.

The O & M Department treats wastewater to public access standards, stores over 700 million gallons at two reservoirs and ten above ground storage tanks, and delivers approximately 25.1 MGD of high quality, reclaimed water to 71,593 residents and a variety of other customers.

Updated 6/6/22: Effective Tuesday May 17, 2022 Off-Hours Requests” will be available 1 day a week, Tuesdays from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM through Pasco County Reclaim Services (PCRS).

Pasco County’s dry season generally occurs from May to August. During this timeframe, interruptions to service may occur.  When higher than normal demands occur, reclaimed water services may not be available throughout the entire 6 p.m. to 8 a.m. service window. Pasco County Utilities asks customers to adhere to their watering schedule to extend our reclaimed water supply. 

Current reclaimed water customers should never water more than twice-a-week and should adhere to their watering schedule. During rain events, customers should also consider skipping one or both irrigation days. Saving reclaimed water is beneficial to the environment and stretches the reclaimed water supply for drier days.
