The City of Sanford’s Reclaimed Water System has been facing operational challenges. Thus, limiting the availability of public access for quality reclaimed water for our customers. For the time being, we will have to continue restricting the hours of operation. You may use the reclaimed water system from 10:00 pm to 5:00 am for irrigation on your scheduled days. * Please note you may experience low pressure due to high demand and low supply.Read More
