Information from the Drinking Water Data Base
The 5 reports below contain data for drinking water systems and are further divided by year or geographic area to make deploying the spreadsheets quicker. The files for Facilities, Flows and Plant Treatments are updated quarterly. The Chemical and Microbiological files are updated annually in March. Included is information on sample results, average/max monthly flows, types of water treatment, the type of system, address, capacity, sources of water, population and service connections served, dates the Department performed the last sanitary survey, and the dates the last bacteria and inorganic/organic contaminant testing was performed.
The Department of Environmental Protection has six district offices around the state. For the Basic Facility Reports there is a list of the Florida counties and the DEP district that the county is in. Note that some counties are split between more than one DEP district.
Public Water System Identification Numbers (PWS ID)
Each water system in the data base is identified by a unique seven digit number. For instance, the Murphree Water Treatment Plant in Gainesville is identified by the number 2010946. The first number of the identifier, "2", tells you that the water plant lies in DEP District 2 which is in Jacksonville. The next two numbers, "01", identifies the county where the water plant is located. In this instance the county is Alachua. The last four numbers, identify the specific water system within the county and DEP district.
