Environmental Compliance

The St. Petersburg Environmental Compliance Division (ECD) Laboratory Policy Statement:
The city's Environmental Compliance Division (ECD) strives to provide clients with prompt and efficient environmental laboratory testing services following professional practices that produce data of high quality and integrity used to ensure public health and safety.

This division protects human health and the environment by ensuring conformity to federal and state environmental laws and regulations. The division is audited on a regular basis, and laboratory performance studies are conducted bi-annually to ensure valid results.

Environmental Specialists collect samples from various locations, including water reclamation facilities, industrial facilities, the Cosme drinking water plant and pump stations, wastewater lift stations, injection and monitoring wells, and recreational beaches. Then, trained Laboratory Chemists analyze the samples using advanced technology and procedures. Samples are tested for a variety of compounds, outlined in a detailed Laboratory Analysis Report

St. Petersburg Water Resources employees take pride in making sure the well-being of utility customers and maintaining a healthy environment is a number one priority.  

The Water Quality Report (also known as the Consumer Confidence Report - CCR) is designed to inform customers about the high quality of the drinking water and services delivered to utility customers over the previous year. It is required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency while ensuring regular monitoring of drinking water contaminants to meet and/or exceed federal and state laws, as well as industry rules and regulations.
