A Word From Our Utilities Director

This 2020 Water Quality Report contains detailed information about your drinking water. It explains the steps we take to ensure its safety. It includes the results of the sampling and testing we conducted between January 1, 2020 and December 31, 2020.

In retrospect, 2020 was a challenging year as staff quickly shifted gears to protect themselves from COVID-19 while continuing to provide services to our customers. While some personnel were able to telecommute, many of the utility workers were required to be on site every day to ensure services were provided to customers. While the pandemic created a challenging work environment, staff learned to adapt and the systems in place will allow us to be more resilient in the future if faced with a similar challenge.

Our primary source of water is from the Intermediate and Floridan Aquifers. This is a well-protected ground water source located hundreds of feet underground. We supplement our groundwater supply with surface water drawn from the Taylor Creek Reservoir. The Taylor Creek Reservoir is located three miles from the Claude H. Dyal Water Treatment Plant.

Our state certified water lab conducts over ten-thousand chemical and bacteriological water quality tests each year. Our lab technicians test for more than 135 regulated and unregulated substances including lead and copper. A summary of that testing is included in this report.

I am proud to work with dedicated professionals who truly appreciate the responsibility of treating and delivering high-quality, great-tasting water.

John A. Walsh
Utilities Director
