The OUC Water Guide
Conserving Our Water Resources
As Central Florida continues to grow, so does the demand for clean, safe water from the Floridan Aquifer. To prepare for our region's future needs, OUC has taken a leadership role in the search for innovative, reliable solutions while still providing clean, great-tasting water for our customers today.
To identify solutions for the short- and long-term protection of our vital water resources, OUC is working closely with water management districts, other utilities, and federal and state regulatory agencies like the EPA's WaterSense program. OUC is a partner in the WaterSense program, which makes it easy to save water and protect the environment by identifying water-efficient ideas and products.
Not only are we helping our customers save water, we're committed to making sure our own facilities are water efficient. In fact our new downtown customer service and administration center, Reliable Plaza, has earned a Florida Water Star certification for its water efficient features and Florida friendly landscaping. Reliable Plaza uses 40 percent less water than a similarly sized facility.
