SOURCE WATER ASSESSMENT

In 2017 the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) performed a source water Assessment on our system. The assessment was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. According to the assessment, there are two potential sources of contamination identified for our system, with susceptibility levels classified as low to moderate susceptibility. The potential sources of contamination include domestic wastewater and hazardous waste. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp or can be obtained from the City of Oldsmar Public Works Department located at 100 State St. West, Oldsmar, Fl. 34677 or by calling 813-749-1233.
