Wildwood Utility Dependent District (WUDD)

The Wildwood Utility Dependent District was created in March 2021 to provide water, wastewater, reclaimed water, and non-potable irrigation water services to certain properties in The Villages. In October 2021, WUDD purchased the South Sumter Utility (SSU) which provides both potable water and wastewater services to approximately 7,825 homes located in Districts 12, 13 and a portion of District 14.

In March 2021, the system was approximately 65% completed and is anticipated to be finished in 2024. At completion the system is projected to be comprised of 181 miles of an interconnected network of pressurized water mains.

SSU is regulated by the Southwest Florida Water Management District for water use and is regulated by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Orlando Office, for water and wastewater treatment and distribution.
