Work order tasks by division

This informs the divisions of the workload and ensuring work orders are completed and closed. This information is work orders by month initiated with the dark blue as closed/finished and light green as open. 

Main pipes for drinking water require ongoing repair and replacement

The spike in water repairs was during September 2017 - the same month as Hurricane Irma. There was an increase in repairs during the summer rain months as well.

2017 Water Quality Report Highlights

This is an annual report that runs a year behind. These are the most requested items of the water quality report. 
The color bar shows the level detected and the grey bar shows the maximum contaminant level allowed.  Chloramines should be close to the top of the range because it helps to control microbes.  All other elements should test as low as possible.

Three Water Reclamation Facilities (WRF) share the load

Water Reclamation Facilities is a division of the Water Resources Department that operates and maintains the three Wastewater Treatment Plants and all of the sanitary sewage lift stations. We examine and track rainfall and flow to monitor the relationship between rainfall and increase flows at the Water Reclamation Facilities.
The peaks in the line data represent an increase of influent flow for the particular plants and the bars represent the daily average rain fall in inches for that month measured at the plant. This is the average daily influent flow for each month since April 2018. 
This graph shows the daily flow average by month in millions of gallons (MGD) for each Water Reclamation Facility, the average rainfall in inches for the month at each facility and the associated daily permitted capacities for each plant.  Northeast – 16.0 MGD, Northwest – 20.0 MGD & Southwest – 20.0 MGD.
