City Water Safe to Drink

Post Date:07/19/2019 10:19 PM
Late today Florida Today and Orlando Sentinel reported that algae has been found in Lake Washington. They also reported that the water we distribute to our customers is treated and remains safe to drink. We test the water coming into the water treatment plant and adjust our treatment process if necessary to ensure the safety of the water for our customers. This water is regularly tested at multiple points throughout the distribution system to confirm it remains safe as it moves through the system. Because we have had to adjust our treatment process to remove the additional bacteria coming from the surface water of the lake, some customers have reported a higher than usual chlorine odor from our tap water. Our ozone treatment is at full capacity and additional flushing throughout the distribution system should resolve this issue. The water remains safe for drinking.
