Windermere Water Master Plan (North, Central, & South Phases) – The drivers for this project are safety, environmental protection, and reliability. This project will improve safety by providing a monitored, safe drinking water supply and by improving fire protection capabilities. This project will protect the environment by reducing the number of wells around the Town’s Outstanding Florida Waterbodies. This project will improve reliability by providing a pressurized system that does not require electricity to operate residential well pumps.
Wastewater Study – The Town of Windermere is surrounded by Florida Outstanding Water Bodies. Over 80% of the homes both lake front and in the lake basins are on septic. The Town would like to study how to bring in a centralized wastewater system and how this infrastructure would improve the lakes water quality.
