On Thursday, January 19th, the Orange County Utilities Department will begin sending out postcards to some of its customers regarding a small number of water samples that were not properly completed when testing for total coliform and bromate.
All samples taken since have been properly processed as required. The water treatment processes did not change; subsequent samples affirm the safety and quality of the drinking water. Customers receiving a postcard are not required to take action or use an alternative water source.
“In advance of the informational postcards reaching customers, we want to reaffirm to our community that our water treatment processes are safe and reliable,” Ed Torres, Director of Orange County Utilities, said. “The quality of our drinking water and ensuring customer confidence is of utmost importance to us. We will keep the community informed and continue our ongoing commitment to providing excellent services to Orange County customers.”
If residents have any additional questions, they should contact the Utilities Lab at
OCUDLab@ocfl.net or 407-254-9550.
