The Villages beautiful Lake Sumter


The District is pleased to be able to serve its residents with a supply of pure and safe water while providing dependable wastewater and storm water services.

Water supply quantities are regulated by the St. Johns Water Management District (Lake County) and Southwest Florida Water Management District (Sumter and Marion County) which have issued consumptive use permits to the four utility companies serving the residents of The Villages. Water and wastewater treatment and distribution are regulated by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.

The Utilities serving the residents of The Villages are:

  • Village Center Service Area (Lake County and District 1 in Sumter County) is owned by Village Center Community Development District.
  • Little Sumter Service Area (District 2, 3 in Sumter County and District 4 in Marion County) is owned by Village Center Community Development District.
    EXCLUDES Dist. 4 Ph. IV Phillips (M232) / Soulliare (M233) / Chatham Acres (M839)
  • North Sumter Utility (District 5, 6, 7, 8 and a small section of District 9 in Sumter County) is owned by North Sumter County Utility Dependent District.
  • Central Sumter Utility Serving a majority of District 9, all of District 10 in Sumter County and District 11 in Lake County is owned by North Sumter County Utility Dependent District.
  • South Sumter Utility (Districts 12, 13 and a portion of District 14) is owned by the Wildwood Utility Dependent District.

VCCDD Utilities Department is responsible for the operations and management of the water and wastewater treatment systems. The VCCDD Finance Department is responsible for the billing and collection of payment for those services.

All of the water meters that the District installs are manufactured and warrantied for accuracy in compliance of the American Water Works Association (AWWA) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

While the District may be able to assist a customer in determining how much water is being used, it is ultimately the customer’s responsibility to find the source of perceived high-water usage on their premises.

The District is not responsible for demonstrating to a customer where or how they are using water on their premises. The District offers once-per-year testing of your water meter at no charge. 3rd Party independent testing is also available, at charge.
