Utilities Department

In December of 1991, DeSoto County signed an agreement with the Peace River Manasota Regional Water Supply Authority (PRMRWSA) to supply the County with a sufficient high quality and safe drinking potable water supply.  In October of 2005 the County entered into a Master Water Supply Contract with the Authority which establised the County as an "exclusive provider customer" that will guarantee all of our future water needs.  The current allocation rate is 0.675 MGD (million gallons/day).  

The County has approximately 43 miles of water transmission main which includes 9 miles of distribution main and (2) water booster pump stations that include (2) above ground storage tanks each with a storage capacity of 500,000 gallons.  Additionally, the System has approximately 34 miles of force mains and 5 miles of gravity lines with an existing 0.50 MGD WWTP at the DeSoto Correctional Facility and a 0.750 MGD Regional WWTP on South Hwy 31. 

We are currently in the third phase of the US 17 road widening and pipe extensions from County Road 760-A to Heard Street in the City of Arcadia

Our service area is defined as “encompassing all unincorporated areas of DeSoto County, less those areas serviced by the City of Arcadia to include the Lake Suzy service area which was purchased in April of 2013.
