    September 27, 2017 - Lake Advisory for City Lakes LIFTED

    Along with Orange County and the City of Winter Park, the City of Orlando is lifting the Lake Advisory on City lakes. If you have further questions, please contact stormwater@cityoforlando.net.

    ~~~~~~~

    September 8, 2017 - Lake Advisory Issued for Hurricane Irma

    To address citizen concerns related to water quality, the Stormwater Section has developed a public information system, "Lake Alert," to provide seasonal and localized warnings (and updates) for City of Orlando lakes. An announcement has been provided below regarding the lake(s) where water quality has been a concern.

    The City of Orlando has issued a Lake Advisory for all lakes for the duration of Hurricane Irma and directly afterwards.  Due to the storm, there is a high potential for water contamination, sewer overflows, active wildlife and other safety concerns.  Take extreme caution around all waterways during this time.

    For more information on Hurricane Irma, visit  www.cityoforlando.net/status/

    Hurricane Irma Yard Debris Collection Update
     

    Did you know, the amount of yard debris left by Hurricane Irma is more than the City of Orlando would normally collect over 4.5 years? Since the hurricane, our crews have been working seven days a week to pick up this debris.   
     

    Here's what you can expect during the cleanup process: 


    Bags and Bundles
    Bags and small bundles (using duct tape or twine) will be picked up sooner than large piles that require a claw truck. On your regular yard waste collection day, bagged and bundled items will be collected. Because of the volume, we might not get to your street on your scheduled day, but will do our best to pick up the following week.


    Large Items
    Our crews that collect larger items like downed trees, limbs, and branches are working 12-hour shifts, seven days a week, but have a limited capacity to pick up large quantities. To supplement efforts, the city utilizes debris contractors to assist after storms. However, because of the impact of Hurricanes Irma and Harvey, contractors are in short supply as they respond across Florida and Texas. Our contractors are responding as quickly as they can to assist with our cleanup efforts. 
     

    Here’s how you can help: 

    1. Bag and bundle as much of your vegetative debris as possible. If you can, help your neighbors, who might need assistance, bag and bundle their debris. 
    2. You can immediately drop off yard debris at one of 11 sites throughout Orange County from 7 a.m. - 7 p.m. daily. 
    3. Remember to place all large debris on the curb. Do not place debris in the roadway, on sidewalks or near fire hydrants.   
    4. If you have larger items such as appliances or furniture that were damaged in the storm, please call 407.246.2314 (Monday-Friday,  8 a.m.- 5 p.m.) to schedule a large-item pickup.  

    We appreciate your partnership and your patience as we continue to clean up our City Beautiful.

    What’s That Smell? Why Am I Being Asked to Conserve Water?


    You might have noticed some bad smells throughout Central Florida following Hurricane Irma. There are multiple reasons for bad smells after a storm:

    • Muck and sediments disturbed by rising waters
    • Groundwater contains sulfur which smells like rotten eggs. High water tables make this smell more prevalent.
    • Rotting trees and vegetation
    • Dead fish and animals
    • Sewer overflows resulting from lift stations losing power and excessive stormwater entering and overloading sewer lines

    NOTE: A sewer overflow does NOT smell like rotten eggs.


    If you are noticing bad smells, do not call 9-1-1. Try to safely view the surrounding area in which you believe a smell may be coming from. 


    If you see water pouring out from a structure or coming from a manhole, it might be a sanitary sewer overflow.

    Please call our Water Reclamation Division at 407.246.2213 if you witness a sanitary sewer overflow taking place.


    To limit sewer overflows, we are asking you to continue conserving your water use for normal household activities. Limiting your use of water from showers, sinks, dishwashers, and washing machines can help reduce excessive flow that can overload lift stations.


    Thank you.
