The importance of having safe water in Florida
In Florida and Southwest United States, the geographical location of water sources relative to the community can significantly impact the quality of the water and its effect on human health. Water from numerous watersheds enters Sanibel Island via groundwater and surface water. The FPL wastewater treatment plant removes most contaminants before the treated wastewater is discharged into Boca Ciega Bay.
The Sanibel Island Facility is responsible for maintaining, testing, and distributing the water in the city. The main water treatment plant has undergone significant renovations in recent years. More recently, a new advanced filtration system and built-in ultraviolet disinfection capabilities were added.
Water quality testing and analysis are vital to public health to ensure that the water is clean and safe for consumption. The analysis of this information allows for a better understanding of water quality at a specific location and time. A monitoring protocol allows citizens better to know the local, state, or national conditions.
EPAs test residential and commercial water quality in addition to the surface (river, lake, and ocean) water quality data collected from over 20,000 sites across the United States. EPA conducts biological primary and secondary standards to evaluate the health risk of any source for human consumption. Some of these regulated entities are household, agricultural, and commercial, but the agency’s regulatory standards on human health include fresh and marine water.
It is also essential for a new Florida homeowner to pay attention to signs and symptoms that can show bacteria in drinking water or even hepatitis A or typhoid fever. These symptoms include abdominal pain, diarrhea, and fever.
