The Florida Governmental Utility Authority (FGUA) approved reclaimed water service base and consumption charges in the Consolidated-Mad Hatter Utility System on Thursday, November 8, 2018, following duly noticed public hearing and approval by the FGUA Board of Directors.

The approval of the rates was part of FGUA’s current efforts to provide reclaimed water services to customers in the Oak Grove, Twin Lakes, and Terra Bella communities, protect existing water resources, while ensuring the availability of potable water service for future community needs. The FGUA anticipates reclaimed water service will save FGUA customers approximately 60% on their irrigation charges.

Beginning in August, the FGUA will begin retrofitting meters, and ensure backflow prevention devices are working for irrigation-only metered customers that will soon receive reclaimed water service. During this process, customers may experience a brief interruption of service. Prior to the retrofitting on each property, an FGUA Representative provided a courtesy knock advising the customer of the interruption of service. Once service was restored, customers resumed water use as desired, as no Precautionary Boil Water Notices were needed for this service improvement.

The completed schedule of the meter retrofitting and backflow prevention device review project is listed below. Once reclaimed water service is ready for service, the FGUA will be notifying customers by mail in advance of the change to reclaimed water service, anticipated by November 2019.  Customers without current irrigation meters will also receive instructions for receiving an irrigation meter.
