New (Drinking) Water Quality Report Released
St. Petersburg, Fla. (May 2, 2018) --The brand-new Water Quality Report for St. Petersburg’s drinking water system is out!
Also known as the Consumer Confidence Report (CCR), this information is designed to update customers about the quality of the drinking water and services delivered to utility customers over the previous year. The documentation is required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ensure regular monitoring of drinking water contaminants to meet and/or exceed federal and state laws, as well as industry rules and regulations.
The City of St. Petersburg routinely monitors for contaminants in drinking water treated and pumped from the Cosme Treatment Plant, located in northwest Hillsborough County. The release of this data – for the period of January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017 – is to show water quality reporting throughout the year and throughout the system. This year, more than 10 billion gallons of water was treated at the plant. There were no maximum containment level (MCL) violations.
