Water Service Line Replacement Program-The Villages Center Service Area (VCSA)

In our continued commitment to improve the quality of life and maintain the utility infrastructure within The Villages, the Village Center Community Development District will be initiating a Water Service Line Replacement Program in the Villages Center Service Area (VCSA). The potable water system in VCSA is aging and the purpose of the project is to replace service lines, significantly reducing the future potential for leaks. Water service lines bringing water from the water main to household water meters will be replaced as part of this project. During construction, water outages may occur at different times, depending on which area workers are concentrating on. No resident will be without water service during overnight hours. This upgrade to the water system will enhance reliability and service.

Beginning July 15, 2024, District Contractor, RCM Utilities, LLC., will begin replacing the water service connections in the Patio Villas in District 1 of The Villages.

The project is expected to take 8-10 weeks. During construction, homeowner’s water service will be off for no more than eight hours. Homeowners will be given 24-hour notice of when their service will be impacted by way of a door hanger placed on their door. If required, boil water notices will be sent to residents which will be in effect for a 2-day testing period. The safety of our residents and construction personnel is of utmost importance. We ask that everyone abide by all barricades and warning signs to avoid the active construction areas for anything other than access to your property.

We understand that as a homeowner you may have questions concerning the replacement process and may wish to speak with someone. An optional, informational “tailgating” discussion will be held on Monday, July 8, 2024, at 9 a.m. at the Rio Grande Postal Station to discuss the project. Please contact Karen White, District Utilities Operations, at 352-753-4022 for more information or refer to the district website at www.districtgov.org.

*This schedule may be adjusted due to unforeseen circumstances, including weather.

As a valued member of our community, your cooperation is crucial. Everything possible will be done to minimize your inconvenience. For the safety of our crews and all residents, we kindly ask that you reschedule any work or deliveries to your Unit until the paving is complete as they may be denied access. Only residents and emergency vehicles will have immediate access during the construction.

Please DO NOT run your irrigation, wash your vehicle, or empty your pool during the week, as it will increase the work time.

ALL vehicles and trailers must be parked off the roads, and the overflow parking areas must be empty not to impede work.

Please note that newly paved roadways will take approximately one hour to cure and should not be driven on while hot! Driving before this time could result in tracking asphalt onto your driveway and damaging the new roadway.

If you must travel through the construction, your safety is our top priority. Please drive slowly and watch for and listen to directions provided by the contract workers.

Our goal is to provide you with a new road that will last its maximum lifespan with the least amount of inconvenience. While our contractor is diligent in performing the Mill and Overlay operation and will take all precautions to protect your property, these improvements which are in the road right-of-way areas or encroaching into the street are subject to damage or destruction without compensation to the resident. Residents may wish to remove items from the road right-of-way areas in advance of Mill and Overlay to mitigate the potential for damage. The District will not make repairs, restoration, or restitution for items within the road right-of-way that are inadvertently damaged during construction. Your understanding and cooperation are greatly appreciated. If you have any questions during work, there will be someone on-site to help. For additional information, please contact District Property Management at 352-753-4022.
