On 11/18/2023 and 11/19/2023 divers were onsite at West Lake. By the end of the day on the 19th, the reconfigured intake extension was successfully installed and water works crews tested pulling water from that lower intake.
Due to low lake levels, Water Works staff will begin transitioning over to pulling water from the lower intake in the next few weeks. Osceola Water Works will continue to provide updates before this change occurs.
With the extra capacity added from raising the intake, the seasonal decrease in usage as well as the success with conservation measures, Osceola Water Works estimates the remaining water supply to now be approximately 330 days.
Osceola Water Works continues to ask all customers to work together and conserve as much water as possible.
Future updates will be made as they become available.
