Fresh water is the primary source of human health, prosperity, and security. The City of Apopka’s number one priority is to provide safe, clean, and reliable drinking water to our customers. Our operations staff works diligently to ensure that the water produced meets or exceeds all State and Federal regulations to ensure the continued health and well-being of our residents.
For over 50 years the City of Apopka has produced high quality, safe, and reliable drinking water for our customers.
The City of Apopka treats and distributes almost 9 million gallons of safe clean water everyday, through a system of over 360 miles of pipe, to almost 24,000 customer connections.
On average, each of our drinking water connections uses 391 gallons a day of potable water for drinking, cooking, hand washing, bathing, toilets, maintaining pools, washing clothes and dishes, and all other sanitary purposes.
Our water is produced at five water plants from 13 ground water wells, strategically placed through out the city to provide consistent and reliable service to all of our residential and non-residential customers.
In 2020 we analyzed the water for over 8,100 state and federally mandated parameters from approximately 4,400 samples taken throughout our service area.
The City of Apopka’s Water, Wastewater, and Reuse infrastructure is monitored 24 hours a day seven days a week with a full service Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system. SCADA has been in use by the City since the early 1990’s and monitors all operations. In the event of a equipment malfunction in our system, the SCADA system calls a member of the operations staff to advise them of the location and type of malfunction. The use of this technology expedites operations ability to correct any problems and maintain quality service throughout our treatment process and insure compliance with our permits.
