Tampa, FL June 1, 2012 - Tampa's drinking water continues to meet or exceed every health standard developed by both the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Florida Department of Environmental Protection, according to the City's just-released 2011 Water Quality Report.
"A safe, reliable water supply is critical for the health and welfare of our citizens, the prosperity of our businesses and our quality of life," Water Department Director Brad Baird said. "We are proud to deliver high quality drinking water to our customers."
Annually the Tampa Water Department produces and distributes a Water Quality Report for analyses performed on its water in the previous calendar year. The report contains information on Tampa's water sources, how the water is treated, how the water is tested, specific test results for any compounds detected in Tampa's water and other helpful consumer information.
Water Department customers will receive a copy of the calendar year 2011 report enclosed in their City of Tampa utility bills before July 1. Users who do not receive an individual City of Tampa utility bill or other interested persons can view this year's Water Quality Report at www.TampaGov.net/WaterQuality or request one by calling (813) 274-8121.
The skilled men and women of the Tampa Water Department support the 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week operation to provide clean, safe drinking water to our community.
