Florida Statute 381.0062 requires that limited use commercial systems (small businesses, food processors) and limited use residential systems (duplexes and greater, assisted living facilities, childcare, family day care) be permitted and monitored by the Health Department. Nearly 400 systems are tracked for water quality and operation. Permits are issued and inspections performed according to Chapter 64E-8 of the Florida Administrative Code (168kb PDF). Statute requires testing for lead and nitrate every three years, quarterly bacteriological sampling, and an annual permit. Service packages are available for these tests. We also offer bacteria testing of drinking water for a fee (samples taken by the client).
