Occasional flushing is part of our quality control and maintenance activities. Hydrant testing is performed by the Fire Department to assure adequate water for firefighting purposes.
About Our Quality Control
Deltona Water’s treatment facilities are staffed by educated, fully trained, state licensed treatment plant operators 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. We are regulated by Washington’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Florida’s Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), Florida’s Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services (HRS), and the Volusia County Health Department. Our plant operators are licensed by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (BPR). On schedules established by law, we test for 144 different contaminants and report these results to the DEP and to the Volusia County Health Department. Some tests are performed daily, some monthly, some quarterly, some annually and some every 3 years.
You may occasionally notice a Deltona Water employee taking a small amount of water from a faucet on the outside of a home or business. Daily testing of the water as it is delivered to our customers is an important part of our quality control program.
Many of our treatment plant operators make their home in Deltona. They and their children drink our water. Because they understand how important a safe and reliable water supply is to the public health, our treatment plant operators are our most demanding customers.
