Water Tips

Tips on Water During Hurricanes

In recent years, OUC water customers in Orlando have not experienced a storm-related loss of water pressure. Should there be water issues following a hurricane or major storm, remember to follow these guidelines:

  • Have bottled water on hand to last several days — one gallon of water per person per day.

  • If you are not sure your tap water is safe, boil water vigorously for 1-3 minutes.

  • If you can’t boil water, add eight drops of new, unscented liquid bleach per gallon of water, stir well and let stand for 30 minutes before using.

  • OR use water-purifying tablets from your local pharmacy or sporting goods store.
