Hurricane Ian Update #9

Last updated on October 03, 2022

October 3, 2022 – ORLANDO, FL – The City of Orlando is issuing the following information to keep the community informed and updated on Hurricane Ian recovery - 


WATER USAGE ADVISORY CONTINUING:   The City of Orlando is asking residents to continue limiting water use. Due to sanitary sewer damage from Hurricane Ian, the city is continuing its water usage advisory until further notice as Public Works staff makes emergency repairs to the sanitary sewer system.

All residents and businesses citywide should limit the following as much as possible: 

  • Flushing toilets 
  • Doing laundry 
  • Washing dishes 
  • Taking showers/baths 
  • Pressure washing
  • Using irrigation systems 

Residents should also avoid bodies of water, including contact with standing water or use of any watercraft in the lakes and streets and please be mindful to not drive through construction zones.

**This is NOT a boil water notice** 

Treatment plants are still operational and producing reusable water. However, additional water usage like this will continue to put more pressure on systems already over capacity which can lead to sewage overflows.  CITIZEN INFORMATION LINE:   The Citizen Information Line – 407-246- HELP (4357) - remains open and operational.  Residents are encouraged to call this line to report damage, downed trees, traffic lights that are out and to get information from the city on response efforts.  

STAY INFORMED Residents can stay informed and get information from the City of Orlando through the website and on social media at:
