Annexation is the act of adding real property to the boundaries of an incorporated municipality, i.e. City of Titusville. See Florida Statute 171.011 thru 171.094. Please call 321-567-3774 for more information.
Per Florida Statute, a governmental entity can only annex properties that abut property located within that city’s boundaries. The statute also strictly prohibits enclaves or pockets of unincorporated areas. Please call 321-567-3782 for more information.
A municipality may wish to annex land to ensure sound urban development and accommodation to growth as well as ensure that municipal services can be provided to those areas. A municipality can only annex land that is contiguous with a part of the boundary of the municipality. A city might wish to annex land to clean up irregular boundaries and eliminate enclaves. A city will also annex land at the request of the property owner. Please call 321-567-3782 for more information.
Annexations can occur in several ways:
-Property owners contiguous to the City may initiate voluntary annexation proceedings. A petition signed by all property owners in the area being considered for annexation must be submitted to the City of Titusville. The Property is annexed upon adoption of an annexation ordinance by Titusville City Council.
-The City can initiate annexation proceedings through an annexation referendum of all registered electors residing in the area being considered for annexation. The annexation passes with a simple majority of registered voters voting for annexation.
-The City can also initiate annexation proceedings in non-residential areas. The City may annex an area when the owners of more than 50% of the acreage and more than 50% of property owner’s consent in the area are consenting to the annexation.
There are many benefits to annexing into the City of Titusville, such as access to a full range of City utilities and services (i.e. water, sewer, solid waste, police, fire and EMS). Residents are also eligible to run for a City Council seat or serve on one of the City's several boards or commissions. The City is also host to many cultural events, recreational programs, and parks and library facilities.
Zoning will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Please call 321-567-3782 for more information.

Anywhere along Titusville’s shoreline will give you the closest unobstructed view of the LaunchPads. For the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Select telecast, restrooms, food, and more we suggest Titusville’s, Spaceview Park.
You will see the rocket on the pad, ignition, and liftoff. It is a picture-perfect view on clear day or night, allowing you to see, feel, and hear launch from the shores of Titusville.
Parking is limited but free!
Area hotels tend to book up early and people often choose to stay a day or two after the launch to tour the area or in case the shuttle is rescheduled for the following day.
The local parks have restroom facilities and in some places, extra facilities are put into place for the launch.
This depends on the type of launch taking place. Typically the beach will remain open for smaller rockets, such as Falcon 9, Delta IV Medium, and Atlas V. Larger rockets, such as the Delta IV Heavy or the future SLS will likely cause the beach to close temporarily. For more information, call the Cape Canaveral National Seashore at 321-267-1110 for further information.

Chapter 119.011(12), Florida Statutes (F.S.).
…all documents, papers, letters, maps, books, tapes, photographs, films, sound recordings, data processing software, or other material, regardless of the physical form, characteristics, or means of transmission, made or received pursuant to law or ordinance or in connection with the transaction of official business by any agency.
Chapter 119, Florida Statutes covers public records. This law provides citizens with unparalleled access to the records of government. Section 119.07(1)(a) states: Every person who has custody of a public record shall permit the record to be inspected and copied by any person desiring to do so, at any reasonable time, under reasonable conditions, and under supervision by the custodian of the public records.
Every person who has custody of a public record shall permit the record to be inspected and copied by any person desiring to do so, at any reasonable time, under reasonable conditions, and under supervision by the custodian of the public records.
Not all records are open for inspection. Certain exemptions to the Florida Public Records Law do exist. Section 119.071 lists the general exemptions from inspection or copying of public records. There are over 1,000 exemptions spread throughout the Florida Statutes.
Some examples of exemptions are:
City staff is under no obligation to "create" a record that does not exist or to provide the information in any other format than that in which it exists.
All departments within the City can assist with public records requests to citizens and outside agencies. The City Clerk’s office manages archived records.
Not all records are kept permanently. The City of Titusville as a public agency is governed by the laws of the State of Florida. The State has established schedules that outline the minimum required retention period for records. The time period required varies from record to record.
In addition, there is a service charge for any "reasonable" time spent over and above 15 minutes to fulfill records requests (the first 15 minutes shall be at no charge). This charge is determined based on the hourly rate, without benefits, of the personnel providing the service. A cost estimate may be provided before the request is filled. Requestors making an extensive request shall be required to pay the estimated fee in advance.
The City’s copy of a record cannot be borrowed or removed from the premises.
In many situations, the record may already exist in an electronic format and can easily be emailed to you.
You may contact the department which originates the document (For example: for building permit records, contact the Building Department). Requests can be made in person, in writing, or by phone. For requests dealing with Police Department records, you may call 321-567-3907.
Otherwise, for general requests and information, the City Clerk’s office can be contacted at 321-567-3675.
Tax increment financing provides most of the funding for the Community Redevelopment Area (CRA). This special funding tool provides all increases in taxes within the CRA beyond the year the CRA was established into a redevelopment fund.
The year the CRA was established is the "base year." Any increases in taxes beyond the base year are provided to the redevelopment fund. Therefore, as the property taxes increase due to redevelopment projects, the redevelopment also increases. Tax increment financing is not an additional tax to the property owner.
The Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) has design guidelines for new development and rehabilitation. These guidelines regulate façade treatments, infrastructure, landscaping, and site design.
All building improvements and site plans must be reviewed by the Community Development Department and all projects of greater than 1.5 acres in property area or 10,001 square feet of building area must be approved by the Community Redevelopment Agency, which includes a public hearing. For more information regarding the guidelines, please contact Tim Ford at 321-567-3860.
The fertilizer Blackout Period is June 1 through September 30. During this period, no fertilizer containing nitrogen or phosphorus can be applied.
For more information, E-mail Eddy Galindo or call 321-567-3976.
The three numbers that are shown on your fertilizer’s label are the percentages of nitrogen (N), phosphate (P2O5), and potash (K2O) contained in the fertilizer.
Slow-release nitrogen in a fertilizer means that the nitrogen is in a form that delays its availability for a plant to uptake and use or that is in a form that extends its availability for use by a plant. Similar terms used to describe the form of nitrogen include "controlled release", "timed release," and "slowly available."
Most fertilizers have three numbers on their label separated by dashes. These three numbers show the percentages of nitrogen (N), phosphate (P2O5), and potash (K2O) contained in the fertilizer. A zero as the first number would mean it contains no nitrogen. A zero as the second numbers would mean it contains no phosphate. By law, all fertilizer must include a guaranteed analysis table on its label.
The first item listed in the table must be total nitrogen if there is nitrogen in the fertilizer. The second item listed in the table must be phosphate if there is phosphate in the fertilizer.
No. Under Titusville’s fertilizer rules, fertilizer that contains phosphorus is prohibited unless you obtain a soil test that indicates a phosphorus deficiency (see FAQ on soil tests).
No fertilizer with nitrogen and/or phosphorus can be applied during any of the following periods:
A Fertilizer Free Zone is exactly what it sounds like: an area free of fertilizer. Residents who live along the Indian River Lagoon are prohibited from using fertilizer within 25 feet of the shoreline of the Indian River Lagoon. All property owners are prohibited from using fertilizer within 10 feet of any water body.
All property owners, especially those living near water bodies, are encouraged to plant native vegetation and practice Florida-Friendly landscaping techniques to reduce or eliminate all fertilizer use. Visit our water conservation pages to learn more about Florida-Friendly landscaping.
For more information, E-mail Eddy Galindo or call 321-567-3976.
Ask your lawn service or landscaper. A licensed professional should be able to tell you how much (what percentage) nitrogen and phosphorus the fertilizer he/she uses on your property contains.
Yes, from October 1 through May 31 you may use a fertilizer that contains nitrogen. However, if you use a fertilizer that contains nitrogen, at least 50% of the total nitrogen must be slow-release. See FAQs on:
The new regulations concerning nitrogen and phosphorus apply to the fertilizer that you apply to your property. In addition, at least one of your employees must have completed certification in the Florida-friendly Best Management Practices for Protection of Water Resources by the Green Industries offered by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection through the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) Florida-friendly Landscapes program.
The new regulations concerning nitrogen and phosphorus apply to the fertilizer that you use in your business. In addition, you must have limited certification for urban landscape commercial fertilizer by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
You must also have completed certification in the Florida-friendly Best Management Practices for Protection of Water Resources by the Green Industries offered by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection through the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) Florida-friendly Landscapes program.
Yes. As long as your rotary (broadcast) spreader has a deflector shield, under the new rules it can still be used to apply fertilizer. Make sure you adjust the deflector shield so that the fertilizer does not end up on impervious surfaces such as driveways, sidewalks, and streets or in water bodies such as lakes, ponds, and ditches.
Remember that if you live along the Indian River Lagoon, you are prohibited from using fertilizer within 25 feet of the shoreline. All Titusville property owners are prohibited from using fertilizer within 10 feet of any water body. By planting native vegetation and practicing Florida-Friendly landscaping techniques, you can reduce or eliminate all fertilizer use.
During a rainstorm, the water that flows over the land as runoff collects in streams, canals, rivers, etc. The land area that drains or contributes runoff water to these streams, canals, rivers, etc. is called a watershed. All land is part of a watershed.
For more information please contact Sustainability Planner Eddy Galindo at (321) 567-3976 or email@example.com
The percentage of slow-release nitrogen is listed in the guaranteed analysis table on your fertilizer’s package. To find out if at least 50% of the nitrogen is slow-release nitrogen, divide the amount of slow-release nitrogen by the amount of total nitrogen (also listed in the guaranteed analysis table). Multiply your answer by 100. If the result is 50 (%) or higher, your fertilizer contains the required amount of slow-release nitrogen.
Fertilizer labeled 29-0-4
Guaranteed analysis table lists 29% Total Nitrogen and 5.9% Slow-Release Nitrogen
5.9 ÷ 29 = 0.2034 × 100 = 20.34%
This means 20.34% of the nitrogen contained in this fertilizer is slow-release nitrogen.
This fertilizer cannot be used because it contains less than 50% slow-release nitrogen.

On November 8, 2016, Florida voters overwhelmingly approved Amendment 2, expanding the lawful market of medical marijuana in Florida. Florida is now one of 44 states with some form of legal medical marijuana.
The Florida Department of Health - Office of Medical Marijuana (OMM) is charged with overseeing the regulatory infrastructure for medical cannabis in the state. The regulatory infrastructure includes, but is not limited to, licensing of patients, healthcare providers, and Medical Marijuana Treatment Centers (dispensaries). In order to receive approval to operate in the City, all State of Florida licensing requirements will need to be met.
On February 13, 2018, the Titusville City Council adopted Ordinance 5-2018. These regulations focus on proper locations for opening and operating these types of facilities in the city limits.
The State of Florida Office of Medical Marijuana (OMM) is charged with writing and implementing the rules for medical marijuana, overseeing the statewide Medical Marijuana Use Registry, and licensing Florida businesses to cultivate, process, and dispense medical marijuana to qualified patients.
You should start at the State’s Office of Medical Marijuana (OMM). The City of Titusville will require all licensing to be in place at the state level prior to issuance of any permit or Business Tax Receipt to operate within the City.
If you are a state-approved dispensary and have a question about a specific location in the City of Titusville, please email the Planning Department or call 321-567-3782.

Designation means that the City of Titusville and the State of Florida officially recognizes your property as being significant to the community and state due to its historical associations or its architectural features or both.
Yes, designation brings many benefits, including:
The history of Titusville dates back to the 19th century and you can trace back and appreciate the City’s development through its architectural styles and building details. Sadly much of the original design and the overall character of the buildings have been destroyed or irretrievably altered so that present and future generations can no longer appreciate the beauty and richness of Titusville’s past.
By conserving the fine craftsmanship on one of a few remaining structures of a certain style, you are preserving an important part of the City’s heritage and contributing to the long-term aesthetic and economic value of the City, as well as to that of your own property.
No. Historic designation honors your property. You do not have to pay for it.
No. A historically designated property is not taxed differently from a non-historic property. Improvements to a designated property are considered the same as improvements to a non-historic building for the purposes of taxation.
Several years ago, a cultural resource firm helped the Board conduct a City-wide survey. They identified more than 100 properties that retained their original integrity of form and siting (meaning that they have not been changed greatly), reflected an important aspect of local, state or national history, and/or contributed to the overall character and "streetscape" of a historic neighborhood. They determined that your property is historically significant. This research was funded by a matching grant from the Florida Division of Historical Resources that was administered by the Titusville Historic Preservation Board.
Upon your approval, then your property will be included in a Preliminary Report that the Titusville Historic Preservation Officer submits to the Titusville Historic Preservation Board for review and comments. After this 30-day review period, the Board will sponsor a Public Hearing concerning all the properties that are being considered for designation. You will be notified of the date and time of this Public Hearing by certified mail to your address as recorded in the Assessor’s Office.
Based on the comments received at or before the Public Hearing, the Officer will prepare a Final Report for submission to the City Council. Based on their findings and a majority vote, they will determine which properties to designate. A resolution will be submitted to the Mayor for signature. The resolution is official upon its filing with the City Clerk and recording in the Official Records of Brevard County.
The Ordinance symbolizes Titusville’s pride in its heritage and appearance. It protects and preserves buildings and areas with a high level of historical, cultural or architectural importance. The buildings and areas protected by the Ordinance exhibit workmanship and quality of materials that are representative of the "best" buildings remaining in the City. They are irreplaceable resources. Preservation of buildings and areas through the Ordinance enhances the quality of the environment for all residents and businesses in Titusville.
The Ordinance sets forth guidelines for building alterations and new construction on, or near, historic buildings or districts, and creates a review process to ensure that these guidelines are applied. It also establishes the membership of the Commission and the procedures by which they perform their work.
The Titusville Historic Preservation Board administers the ordinance. The Board has developed specific guidelines to aid historic property owners in making appropriate and sensitive decisions about alterations, additions, and repairs to their properties. The Board meets regularly on the first Monday of the month to review cases related to exterior alterations. Special meetings occur throughout the year to handle subcommittee affairs and oversee grant projects and historical events.
The Titusville Historic Preservation Board consists of seven members and two alternates with a wide variety of experience and interest in historic preservation. Four of the members must be Titusville residents. Local historian, and/or architectural or art historian, architect, urban and regional planner, landscape architect, lawyer, engineer and/or building contractor, realtor and/or property appraiser, interested residents of city historic districts; and Brevard County Historic Preservation Commission. All members of the Board are appointed by the City Council.
No. They volunteer their time because of their interest and/or experience with older structures as well as their commitment to historic preservation in Titusville. Members typically serve for two year terms and can be reappointed.
The Board and its staff develops educational material and fosters community pride about local history and preservation through a variety of activities.
Local designations have special significance to Titusville; a property on the National Register of Historic Places, however, has regional or national significance. The Titusville Historic Preservation Board protects properties that are local designations; it does not have jurisdiction over properties in the National Register of Historic Places unless they are also designated by local ordinance.
Yes. If your property has both local and regional or national significance, it may be designated as a local designation and also listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Once it is designated in the Local Register of Historic Places, alterations to the exterior must be reviewed by the Titusville Historic Preservation Board.
Yes. Currently, there are six National Register of Historic Places including a National Historic District.
Properties may be eligible for tax deductions when they are substantially rehabilitated. The cost of the proposed rehab must exceed the "adjusted basis" of the historic property in order for you to qualify for an Investment Tax Credit (known as an ITC) on your federal income tax statement. The federal government refers to this as "substantial rehabilitation" of the building. The "adjusted basis" is generally the value of the building minus the value of the land at the time of rehabilitation. It is best to consult a professional appraiser to calculate this figure and a tax professional to advise on the requirements for an ITC application.
The Board reviews any alterations or repairs that are visible from a public way and that would result in an irreversible change in the design, materials, or outward appearance of the structure. It also reviews any changes in the general arrangement of the building’s features or its architectural details, such as the arrangement of windows or doors.
The Board does not review cases that involve routine maintenance or replacement of any part of the property using the same design and materials as the original building. The Board also does not review cases in which buildings have been destroyed by fire or other disaster, as long as the reconstruction occurs within a year and is substantially similar to the original building in exterior design, type of use, and size.
No. Property owners are not required to correct or remove alterations or construction done prior to the time their property was designated.
Before obtaining a building permit from the Building Division within the Community Development Department, you should contact the Staff of the Board (the Planning and Growth Management Department serves as the staff liaison to the Historic Preservation Board and can be reached at 321-567-3778) to determine if the proposed changes need to be reviewed by the Board.
If your alterations are not exempt, you must apply for a Certificate of Appropriateness. You will be asked to discuss your plans with members of the Board at a monthly public meeting. (If you do not wish to appear at the public meeting, you may appoint someone, including your contractor or the Staff, to take your place.) If the Board finds the proposed changes compatible with the historic character of your property, it will issue a Certificate of Appropriateness. The Board may also issue a Certificate of Appropriateness on the condition that you modify your plans according to its recommendations, or a Certificate of Hardship in those rare instances where it is necessary.
A Certificate of Appropriateness is a permit issued by the Board that allows you to proceed with alterations to your property, and that you take to Building Division to receive a building permit.
It is best to contact the Staff of the Board as soon as you have an idea of what alterations you would like to make to the exterior of your property that are visible from a public way. The Staff is knowledgeable about historic properties, architecture and contractors experienced in working on older buildings, and can save you time and money achieving your goals.
Yes. The Board is comprised of knowledgeable people in many different fields. As such, they offer professional advice, practical information, and pertinent references about materials and techniques used in historic preservation and restoration. The Board’s Staff will also provide technical assistance, help you complete the permit application, answer questions, and direct you to valuable resources needed for work on your property. If your income level qualifies, you will also be eligible for one of the City’s housing improvement programs.
The Board will tell you at its meeting, as well as notify you in writing of the reasons for its decision, and will recommend how to modify the proposed changes. The Board will also identify sources of additional assistance and information to help you modify your plans appropriately. The Staff is also available for additional technical assistance and advice.
Yes. You may appeal to the Titusville City Council within 20 days after the Board has filed notice of its decision not to grant a Certificate of Appropriateness.
For more information, contact the City Council.
Excess nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus) entering the Indian River Lagoon have attributed to a reduction in the amount of seagrass in the Lagoon. In an effort to reduce nutrients entering the Indian River Lagoon, the City of Titusville has completed and continues to develop stormwater improvements.
Along with some already completed projects, which can be viewed on the Indian River Lagoon Stormwater Projects page, over the past year the City has initiated and/or completed numerous stormwater treatment and outreach projects:
The littoral zone is the area near the shoreline where sunlight penetrates all the way to the bottom and allows aquatic plants to grow. Littoral zones are present in both fresh and saltwater environments.
Stormwater ponds capture the stormwater runoff from the surrounding area, along with many of the pollutants like excess nutrients found in fertilizers, pet waste, and yard debris.
Aquatic plants in the littoral zone can improve water quality by removing excess nutrients like phosphorus and nitrogen from stormwater runoff. The plants then use these nutrients to grow and remain healthy. This can help improve water clarity and prevent algal blooms. These native plants also stabilize the banks to prevent erosion and provide habitat for wildlife.
Excess nutrients entering the Indian River Lagoon have been attributed to a reduction in the amount of seagrass in the lagoon. Seagrasses are essential to the lagoon and serve as the primary indicator of the lagoon’s overall health.
Excess nutrients can cause algae blooms and aquatic weed growth which can block needed sunlight from the water and rob the water of oxygen, killing plants, fish, wildlife and may even trigger human health concerns. By removing some of these nutrients upstream, prior to the runoff leaving the pond, those pollutants will never enter the Lagoon.
Littoral zone and shoreline buffers can be an effective means of filtering out pollutants around many types of waterbodies including:
Affidavits of Compliance can be satisfied during normal business hours from 9 am until 4 pm. Monday through Friday. The cost is $4 if corrected within 30 days of issuance of the traffic citation. The affidavit still must then be presented to the Clerk of the Court to receive a reduced fine amount of $7.50 for a total fine of $11.50.
If the defect is not corrected the affidavit will not be completed. The full fee of $74.50 will be due and payable at the Brevard County Clerks Office within 30 days.
Sorry, we no longer conduct fingerprinting services at the police department. You may consider contacting Brevard County Sheriff’s Office at 321-264-5100.
To request a copy of a report call 321-567-3907. Please have ready the case number, date, and time the report was taken, and the officer’s name. Requests for reports take approximately three days to complete. Some information will be censored due to confidentiality requirements.

An Injunction will help you establish:
An Injunction can keep the abuser from:
The Police can arrest the abuser or the police can file for an arrest warrant if the abuser is no longer at the scene.
Keep a journal of all violations:
Most importantly remember, you do not have to be abused again to put the abuser back in jail. Always keep a copy of the No Contact Order/Injunction available.
Operation Safeguard is a crime prevention initiative designed to help Law Enforcement successfully identify, recover, and return stolen property to its rightful owner. Historically, law enforcement agencies nationwide have experienced difficulty in identifying ownership and in returning stolen property.
This initiative is based on a simple theory, persuade property owners to document information about their property. The documented information should include make, model, and serial number. The Titusville Police Department provides a user-friendly form for convenience. Store the form in a safe place. A property without a serial number may be marked with identifying marks.
In the case of theft, the information can be supplied to the Titusville Police Department.
If you are the victim of a burglary/theft, the Titusville Police Department will take the serial number of your stolen property and enter into the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) database which is maintained by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Providing the make, model, and the serial number gives law enforcement useful tools to recover and return your property and the criminal properly prosecuted.
Another valuable avenue of recovery is with pawn shops. The Florida Pawn Broking Act compels pawnbrokers to provide law enforcement information about items pawned including serial numbers. They are also required to obtain government-issued photographic identification of individuals who pawn property and provide that information to law enforcement along with the items pawned.

Determine a time when no water is being used in the home (such as at night while you are sleeping). Remember to turn off your ice maker prior to performing this test.
Go out to your meter and write down the numbers showing on the dial before going to bed. When you awake, before any water is turned on in the home, check your meter again. If the numbers on the dial have changed, you may have a leak.
If you have a new radio-read meter with a digital display, you will need to shine a light on the meter face in order to activate the display. These types of meters also have a small faucet icon that will either flash or be continuously displayed if the meter detects a leak.
Toilets can be checked for leaks by adding toilet dye tablets (available from the Conservation Office) or food coloring to your toilet tank. Wait 15 minutes. If the dye or food coloring appears in the bowl, you have a leak. You may just need to replace the flapper. Always use the flapper recommended by your toilet’s manufacturer.
If a family of four switches out a toilet that uses 7 gallons per flush (gpf) for a WaterSense High Efficiency Toilet (HET) (1.28 gpf) toilet, it could save up to 41,756 gallons of water per year.
Number of People x Gallons per Person per Day x Days per Year = Annual Water Savings
4 x (July 1, 2028) x 5 x 365 = 41,756 Gallons
If this same family had a toilet that used 3.5 gpf and switched to a WaterSense HET toilet, it could save up to 16,206 gallons of water per year.
4 x (3.5 to 1.28) x 5 x 365 = 16,206 Gallons
A faucet aerator mixes air and water for a smooth flow. The aerator is located where the water comes out of the faucet. Aerators are a simple and inexpensive way to save water.
Florida law requires that all automatic outdoor irrigation systems installed after 1991 be equipped with a rain sensor. A rain sensor prevents an irrigation system from working during a rainfall and during the period immediately after a rainfall.
Mulch is great to use in planting beds because it helps to retain moisture. Some natural mulches also provide nutrients for your soil. Mulch is also a great alternative to bare sand or even grass in some areas because it can help prevent erosion and does not require constant maintenance.
You should only water your lawn when it needs it. Are the leaf blades folded? Do footprints remain in it? Is it a blue-grey color? All of these are signs that turf needs water. According to Titusville’s irrigation restrictions, during Eastern Standard Time you may irrigate your lawn only once a week.
During Daylight Saving Time, you may irrigate your lawn up to twice a week. Remember, both restrictions are a maximum. Often lawns, especially those with large bedding areas and plantings, can be irrigated less often and still maintain good health.
Over-watering your yard makes it less drought tolerant and encourages mold and fungal growth.
Yes. Titusville’s irrigation restrictions apply to city (potable) water, well water, and reclaimed water.
Always irrigate your lawn before 10 am or after 4 pm on your watering days. Never water your lawn between 10 am and 4 pm. This is the period of highest evaporation rate and most of the water will only go up into the air versus on your grass.
Under Titusville’s outside irrigation restrictions, you may irrigate your yard with a hose on any day at any time of day, as long as that hose has an automatic shutoff nozzle. An automatic shutoff nozzle is a nozzle that shuts off the water when you let go of the nozzle. Setting the nozzle so that it does not shut off upon release or laying a hose on the ground and allowing it to run is prohibited. If you attach the hose to a sprinkler, you must follow the irrigation restrictions.
No. The irrigation schedules allow you to water on a specific day. If you miss your watering day, you must wait until your next scheduled watering day or water by hand using a hose with an automatic shut off nozzle.
No. Your irrigation day starts at 12:01 am and ends at 11:59 pm, with no watering between the hours of 10 am and 4 pm. Leaving your controller set at your current times would put in you in violation of Titusville’s irrigation restrictions and you would be subject to fines.
Yes. Violations may result in fines. Initial fines start at $100 and apply to each occurrence.
Call the Conservation Office at 321-567-3865. A flyer noting the restrictions will be sent to your neighbor. If inappropriate irrigation continues, they may be subject to fines. Fines start at $100 per occurrence.

Normally water flows from Titusville’s water production facility to your home or business. When water flows in reverse, from your home or business into the water system that is backflow. Backflow is the undesirable reversal flow of a substance through a cross-connection and into the piping of a water system. The two types of backflow are backpressure and backsiphonage.
Backsiphonage occurs when a reduction in water pressure creates a vacuum or suction effect that enables a contaminant to be drawn into the drinking water distribution system. Examples of when water pressure within a water distribution system could drop are a main break or firefighting.
Backpressure is created when a non-drinking water system (such as an irrigation system with a well) is connected into the drinking water system and its pressure exceeds that of the drinking water system. The pressure from this outside system forces the drinking water to reverse its normal flow, which causes the contaminant to flow into the drinking water system.
A cross-connection is a connection between the public water system, such as Titusville’s drinking water system, and another source or system, such as an irrigation system.
There are 6 basic devices that can be installed to prevent backflow:
The device used depends on the degree of hazard to the water system presented by the type of service. Determination as to what device is required is made by Water Resources Field Operations.
A backflow prevention assembly (BPA) is an approved, testable device that uses valves in different configurations to prevent polluted or contaminated water from reversing direction and flowing back into the water system.
Yes, Every property served with reclaimed water must have a backflow prevention assembly on all drinking water connections, including fire services.
Field Operations Division is responsible for testing and maintaining backflow assemblies.
Those curb openings are storm drains that remove the storm runoff from the roadway to keep roads and property from flooding. In Titusville, these openings lead to pipes that eventually discharge to either the Indian River Lagoon or the St. Johns River.

An external grease interceptor is an outside, underground, multi-compartment tank. It separates fats, oils, and grease (FOG) from wastewater and stores it for later disposal.
You need an external grease interceptor to prevent fats, oils, and grease (FOG) from building up in and blocking sewer lines causing raw sewage backups. Sewage backups damage property, harm the environment, stop your business from operating, and affect our wastewater treatment process.
Any establishment that prepares or serves food must have an external grease interceptor, including:
Yes. Just because you do not fry foods does not mean you are not sending fats, oils, and grease (FOG) down the drain. FOG is created from all kinds of foodstuffs that are both animal and vegetable based, including:
Even if you don’t put food and condiments directly down the drain, the oils and grease from them ends up in wastewater from washing dishes, cleaning food prep and cooking equipment, and washing floors.
Nope. Pouring liquid grease down a drain with hot soapy water does not prevent fats, oils, and grease (FOG) nor does it eliminate the need for a grease interceptor. The grease will cool and harden causing blockages and overflows.
Enzymes, chemicals, or other products designed to emulsify or liquefy grease are not acceptable substitutes for a grease interceptor. Garbage disposals are not acceptable substitutes, as they do not remove grease.
Grease interceptor design and installation specifications are available from the Utility Engineering Division at 321-567-3859. Designs must be approved by the city prior to construction and/or installation.
For grease interceptor maintenance, inspection, and record-keeping requirements contact the Environmental Laboratory Services Division at 321-567-3892.
Stormwater fees reflect the cost of providing services and facilities to properly control the quantity and quality of stormwater runoff. The two most important factors in providing stormwater management services are the size of the property and the intensity of its development.

Water can sometimes appear cloudy or milky because of air in the water. If you fill a clear glass with the water and let it sit for a few moments, the water should clear. If the water clears from the bottom first, then the air bubbles were caused either by dissolved oxygen being released or air trapped in the plumbing. The water is safe to use. If the water does not clear or if there is silt remaining at the bottom of the glass, contact Water Production at 321-567-3877.
The build-up you see may be calcium deposits from your hot water heater. Over time, calcium deposits can build up in your hot water heater tank. To prevent this from happening, you should flush your hot water heater tank in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
When people refer to "hard" water, they usually are referring to water that is high in calcium and magnesium; although any substance in water that forms an insoluble curd with soap (keeps soap from lathering or cleansing) causes hardness. In 2018, our water hardness averaged 80 parts per million (ppm) or approximately 80 milligrams per liter (mg/L) or approximately 4.65 grains per gallon (gpg). Although there are many classification scales of water hardness, the American Water Works Association’s scale rates moderately hard water as between 75 and 150 mg/L, hard water as being between 150 and 300 mg/L, and very hard water as being above 300 mg/L. If water is too "soft," it can cause copper to leach from your home’s interior plumbing into your water
Titusville’s drinking water meets or exceeds all federal and state standards for safe drinking water. There are many businesses that sell water "purification" devices. Consumers should always exercise caution when purchasing any device that connects into their water system. If you have any concerns regarding the quality of your drinking water, contact Public Works Water Production Division at 321-567-3855.

pH is a measurement of how acidic or basic (alkaline) a solution may be. pH is measured on a scale of 0 to 14, with 7 being neutral. Basic water contains extra hydroxyl (OH-) ions and would have a pH value greater than 7; Acidic water contains extra hydrogen ions (H+) and would have a pH of less than 7, with 0 being the most acidic. In 2010, Titusville’s water had an average pH of 9.0.
The City of Titusville Water Resources Department is responsible for maintaining the waterline up to your water meter. The line that goes from the meter to the house is the customer’s responsibility to maintain. Builders in the late 40s through the 60s often installed a galvanized metal pipe from the water meter to the house. After 30 or 40 years, most homeowners with this type of connection replace the pipe because the mineral buildup and corrosion in the pipe can diminish the amount of water able to flow through it, causing low water pressure.
Water lines are also replaced when they are damaged (such as being punctured by improper digging) and begin to leak. A knowledgeable homeowner or a plumber is able to make this type of replacement. The old metal pipe is usually replaced with a PVC pipe, which is also used in newer homes. PVC pipe does not corrode and is not as susceptible to mineral buildup. Other than to change out the old metal pipe, this water line is rarely if ever replaced by homeowners unless there are unusual circumstances that damage or stress the pipe.
When it rains, water falls on the ground. If that ground is covered with pavement or buildings, or any other impervious (nonporous) surface the water runs off of the surface and into our curbs, down our storm drains and ends up in our local waterways. Runoff can even occur on pervious surfaces when the rainfall is heavy, or the area is sloped and there is nothing to slow the flow of water over the land and into the streets.
Runoff carries pollutants into local waterways, such as:
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), "a typical city block generates more than 5 times more runoff than a woodland area of the same size." Not only is there more runoff from developed areas, but there is also a significant increase in both the amount and variety of pollutants in that runoff.
To minimize the runoff from your home or business:
No you will only be charged on charge per parcel. One may have the wrong public hearing date listed. The correct public hearing date is August 22, 2023.
For stormwater related essential services within the City including, but not limited to:
No, this assessment has been around since 1990 when the Stormwater Utility was established in Titusville.
The charge is a service fee, not a tax. However, to save administrative costs, it will be billed annually on the property tax bill and collected by the tax collector.
The Stormwater Utility Fee is charged once annually, covers the fiscal year (October 1 to September 30) and is payable, as a non-ad valorem assessment in your tax bill, each year between November 1 and March 31.
Yes. Stormwater charges are different than ad valorem taxes and the stormwater charge applies to all developed property uses regardless of homestead exemption.
Yes. The same discounts and penalties applicable to ad valorem taxes will also apply to stormwater charges collected on the tax bill.
This is a question for your tax adviser. However, generally a stormwater charge against your residence is not a valid income tax deduction. However, if you own rental property or a business, the stormwater charge may be deductible when computing your income taxes. Please contact your accountant or income tax preparer for information regarding your specific situation.
Like property taxes, stormwater charges are billed to property owners only; each property owner or landlord will have to determine how the tenant should share in the stormwater charge costs.
An ERU is a unit of measure which serves as an index to compare the runoff generated by different size properties with different amounts of impervious surface. Impervious surface is any surface which does not allow water to pass through to the soil. Rooftops, driveways, parking lots and streets are familiar examples of impervious surface.
The equivalent residential unit in the city for the purpose of service charge ratemaking has been determined through engineering analysis to be a gross area of 11,000 square feet and a coefficient of runoff of 0.30.
Because the hydrologic response of all detached single-family residential properties is substantially similar to this equivalent unit definitions, they shall be billed for one equivalent residential unit.
All residents benefit when stormwater system improvements are made:
