The Drinking Water Section is responsible for regulating
public water systems under the Safe Drinking Water Act
through inspections, permitting and enforcement activities to
ensure the safety, health and welfare of the public.
Through inspections of these drinking water facilities, staff members
evaluate chemical and bacteriological water quality, proper operation
and maintenance protocol and determine if facilities have sufficient
capacity for their demand. In those instances when facilities are
not in compliance with applicable regulations, staff members initiate
appropriate civil and/or criminal action to correct any problems.
Lastly, the permitting staff ensures that newly constructed public water
systems are appropriately designed and in full compliance with all rules
under the Safe Drinking Water Act.
The Northeast District is currently
undergoing a reorganization in order to provide a higher level
of service to the residents of Florida.
Please check back at this site often for updates on
staffing changes and new information regarding the regulation
of public water systems.
