Where your water comes from

UCNSB serves approximately 25,250 potable water connections within a service area of 41.3 square miles, and a distribution system that has over 300 miles of piping. In FY 2015, UCNSB provided an average daily flow of 4.82 MGD of potable water to our customers.

The raw water supply for UCNSB is derived from the Floridan aquifer. Our 23 production wells in four distinct well fields draw from this very high quality water source in accordance with our Consumptive Use Permit (CUP), issued by the St. Johns River Water Management District. This permit allows us to withdraw up to 8.33 million gallons per day (MGD) to be used in for potable water supply needs.

Raw water from the well supply is treated at our Class A plant, which is the highest classification level designated by the State. The plant must operate with around the clock personnel 365 days a year. Every operator is fully trained and State certified in this profession. The storage, transmission, and distribution facilities of the water system include 5.9 MG of total storage capacity, 4 booster pumping stations and approximately 250 miles of 6" or larger water mains.
