Northeast District Information
Drinking Water Programs

The Drinking Water Section is responsible for regulating approximately 1,000 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.
