BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS HYBRID IN-PERSON AND ONLINE MEETINGS DURING COVID-19 RESPONSE
Banka Doiton 2019The Seminole County Water Division pumps, treats, and delivers drinking water to almost 39,511 residential and commercial accounts through 592 miles of water mains in unincorporated Seminole County. The six water treatment plants produce a maximum capacity of 46.036 million gallons of water per day. You may occasionally see a Seminole County Employee flushing a fire hydrant. This is a common practice in the water industry; hydrant flushing is necessary to test the hydrants to make sure adequate flow and pressure is available. Flushing is also performed to remove sediment from the pipes in order to maintain water clarity and quality in the distribution pipes. Providing our customers with safe, high quality drinking water is our highest priority. We collect and test about 3200 water samples for bacteria each year as well as numerous samples for other chemical parameters to ensure the safety of your water. Other health and safety features of the water system include addition of fluoride, chlorine for disinfection purposes, ozone treatment (at 3 facilities), and maintaining 3,499 fire hydrants.
