Water Quality Report
Yes, it is our job to make sure our water supply is clean…but keeping it clean is more than just a job, it's our passion! We are pleased to present the City of Tallahassee's 2013 Water Quality Report.
Living on top of the most amazing underground water system in North America has a profound effect on how we look at our job. All of our drinking water comes from this remarkable source, the Floridan Aquifer, and it is important to understand that it is both the largest and cleanest underground water systems anywhere in the world.
And we want to keep it that way.
For more than 100 years, the City of Tallahassee has been providing our community with clean, safe and reliable drinking water. Our commitment and our passion runs deep---from rigorous testing and advanced technology to continual facility improvements and international certification for environmental protection. Each year, the City delivers this report to its customers in response to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Safe Drinking Water Act.
As YOUR OWN UTILITIES, we are passionate about making sure that surface water (water that comes from rain and run-off) is properly managed and cleaned before it makes its way into this aquifer. Whether it's runoff from roads, lawns or farms, we work every day to make sure that pollutants and other impurities don't make their way into our water supply. We continuously monitor, measure and test local surface water systems – such as holding ponds and small community lakes – to ensure they are doing their job of keeping our drinking water, in the Floridan Aquifer, as clean as possible.
Passion often yields superior results. Fortunately for our community, we have a remarkable natural source of water to sustain our water supply for generations to come. And with your continued support and cooperation, together we will work – with a passion – to ensure it stays that way.
