Hillsborough County Water Quality Reports Available for the Public

Hillsborough County, Fla. (June 25, 2020) - Hillsborough County's annual water quality reports have been released and are available for the public.

The reports explain Hillsborough County's drinking water quality testing results, offer information on local water resources, and outline the County's continued investment to the local water infrastructure.

Hillsborough County Public Utilities operates 10 community public drinking water systems, and each system has its own report. Visit HCFLGov.net/waterqualityreport to view the calendar year 2019 water quality reports.

On the website, there is an interactive map that allows viewers to type their address and locate the report that pertains to their residence or business. Print copies of the reports may be obtained by calling (813) 246-3146. All customers will receive notice of the available water quality reports through either their mailed bill or e-bill.

In 1996, Congress amended the Safe Drinking Water Act requiring community water systems to each year publish information about their water, including its source, how it is treated, and compliance with regulations.

Hillsborough County Public Utilities provides over 65 million gallons of drinking water per day on an annual average basis to 663,585 people, and treats about 44 million gallons of wastewater each day. In 2019, the County's team collected approximately 7,158 water samples and performed 30,145 tests on the County's drinking water. Hillsborough County's environmental laboratory performs thousands of drinking water tests annually to ensure that customers are receiving water that consistently meets their expectations.
