The Water Treatment Division operates the City of Winter Park owned water treatment facilities. The city’s drinking water facilities consists of four interconnected water plants that serve approximately 24,000 connections in a 22 square mile service area in and outside the city limits.
The treatment process consists of storage, chlorination, fluoridation, the addition of sodium hydroxide for corrosion control of copper piping, and ozonation. The facilities are staffed with well-trained, state certified operators. City drinking water quality presently meets all water standards established by state and federal agencies.
The Cross Connection Control Program protects water quality through the installation of backflow preventors on all connections that may be a potential hazard to the water system. The city also has an inhouse testing and repair program for backflow devices.
