Titusville’s Blue Heron Water Reclamation Facility is experiencing problems with its high-service reclaimed water pumps, which has resulted in a temporary halt to the supply of reclaimed water to customers in the south end of the city.
Public Works Utilities is working to restore service as soon as possible; however, the replacement of the faulty pumps has been delayed due to supply issues. In the meantime, the city is exploring alternative solutions to provide minimum service levels to affected customers.
The interruption in reclaimed water service is an inconvenience, but it does not pose a threat to public health and safety. Reclaimed water is primarily used for irrigation and commercial cooling towers.
Customers are reminded that they must follow the Eastern Standard Time irrigation schedule, which limits outdoor irrigation to once a week until the Daylight Saving Time schedule takes effect on March 12. During Daylight Saving Time, irrigation will be restricted to twice a week.
The city is asking for the cooperation and understanding of its customers during this period of interruption, and updates on the situation will be posted on the city’s website.
