Can You Drink Tap Water in Tallahassee?

Yes, Tallahassee's tap water is generally considered safe to drink as Tallahassee has no active health based violations of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) that we are aware of. Other factors such as lead piping in a home, or low levels of pollutants on immunocompromised individuals, should also be considered, however. To find more recent info we might have, you can check out our boil water notice page or the city's water provider website.

According the EPA’s ECHO database, from April 30, 2019 to June 30, 2022, Tallahassee's water utility, City of Tallahassee, had 0 violations of the Safe Drinking Water Act. For more details on the violations, please see our violation history section below. There has been an active violation for E. COLI since Aug. 1, 2013. This assessment is based on the City of Tallahassee water system, other water systems in the city may have different results.

While tap water that meets the EPA health guidelines generally won’t make you sick to your stomach, it can still contain regulated and unregulated contaminants present in trace amounts that could potentially cause health issues over the long-run. These trace contaminants may also impact immunocompromised and vulnerable individuals.

The EPA is reviewing if it’s current regulations around pollutant levels in tap water are strict enough, and the health dangers posed by unregulated pollutants, like PFAS.

Water Quality Report for Tallahassee Tap Water

The most recent publicly available numbers for measured contaminant levels in Tallahassee tap water are in its 2020 Water Quality Report. As you can see, there are levels which the EPA considers to be acceptable, but being below the maximum allowable level doesn’t necessarily mean the water is healthy.

Lead in tap water, for example, is currently allowed at up to 15ppb by the EPA, but it has set the ideal goal for lead at zero. This highlights how meeting EPA standards doesn’t necessarily mean local tap water is healthy.

EPA regulations continue to change as it evaluates the long term impacts of chemicals and updates drinking water acceptable levels. The rules around arsenic, as well as, lead and copper are currently being re-evaluated.

There are also a number of "emerging" contaminants that are not currently. For example, PFAS (Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances), for which the EPA has issued a health advisory. PFAS are called "forever chemicals" since they tend not to break down in the environment or the human body and can accumulate over time.

We recommend looking at the contaminants present in Tallahassee's water quality reports, or getting your home's tap water tested to see if you should be filtering your water.

Tallahassee Tap Water Safe Drinking Water Act Violation History - Prior 10 Years

Below is a ten year history of violations for the water system named City of Tallahassee for Tallahassee in Florida. For more details please see the "What do these Violations Mean?" section below.

For the compliance period beginning Aug. 1, 2013, Tallahassee had 1 non-health based Safe Drinking Water Act violation with the violation category being Monitoring and Reporting, more specifically, the violation code was Monitoring, Source Water (GWR) which falls into the Microbials rule code group, and the Groundwater Rule rule code family for the following contaminant code: E. COLI.

Is there Lead in Tallahassee Water?

Based on the EPA’s ECHO Database, 90% of the samples taken from the Tallahassee water system, City of Tallahassee, between sample start date and sample end date, were at or below, 0.002 mg/L of lead in Tallahassee water. This is 13.3% of the 0.015 mg/L action level. This means 10% of the samples taken from Tallahassee contained more lead.

While Tallahassee water testing may have found 0.002 mg/L of lead in its water, that does not mean your water source has the same amount. The amount of lead in water in a city can vary greatly from neighborhood to neighborhood, or even building to building. Many buildings, particularly older ones, have lead pipes or service lines which can be a source of contamination. To find out if your home has lead, we recommend getting you water tested.

No amount of lead in water is healthy, only less dangerous. As lead accumulates in our bodies over time, even exposure to relatively small amounts can have negative health effects. For more information, please check out our Lead FAQ page.

Are there PFAS in Tallahassee Tap Water?

Currently, testing tap water for PFAS isn’t mandated on a national level. We do have a list of military bases where there have been suspected or confirmed leaks. There appears to be no military bases near Tallahassee with suspected leaks.

With many potential sources of PFAS in tap water across the US, the best information we currently have about which cities have PFAS in their water is this ewg map, which you can check to see if Tallahassee has been evaluated for yet.

Our stance is better safe than sorry, and that it makes sense to try to purify the tap water just in case.

Tallahassee SDWA Violation History Table - Prior 10 Years

Compliance Period Status Health-Based? Category Code Code Rule Code Contaminant Code Rule Group Code Rule Family Code
08/01/2013 - Unaddressed No Monitoring and Reporting (MR) Monitoring, Source Water (GWR) (34) Ground Water Rule (140) E. COLI (3014) Microbials (100) Groundwater Rule (140)

What do these Violations Mean?

Safe Drinking Water Act Violations categories split into two groups, health based, and non-health based. Generally, health based violations are more serious, though non-health based violations can also be cause for concern.

Health Based Violations

  1. Maximum contaminant levels (MCLs) - maximum allowed contaminant level was exceeded.
  2. Maximum residual disinfectant levels (MRDLs) - maximum allowed disinfectant level was exceeded.
  3. Other violations (Other) - the exact required process to reduce the amounts of contaminants in drinking water was not followed.

Non-Health Based Violations

  1. Monitoring and reporting violations (MR, MON) - failure to conduct the required regular monitoring of drinking water quality, and/or to submit monitoring results on time.
  2. Public notice violations (Other) - failure to immediately alert consumers if there is a serious problem with their drinking water that may pose a risk to public health.
  3. Other violations (Other) - miscellaneous violations, such as failure to issue annual consumer confidence reports or maintain required records.

SDWA Table Key

Field Description
Compliance Period Dates of the compliance period.
Status Current status of the violation.
  • Resolved - The violation has at least one resolving enforcement action. In SDWIS, this indicates that either the system has returned to compliance from the violation, the rule that was violated was no longer applicable, or no further action was needed.
  • Archived - The violation is not Resolved, but is more than five years past its compliance period end date. In keeping with the Enforcement Response Policy, the violation no longer contributes to the public water system's overall compliance status. Unresolved violations are also marked as Archived when a system ceases operations (becomes inactive).
  • Addressed - The violation is not Resolved or Archived, and is addressed by one or more formal enforcement actions.
  • Unaddressed - The violation is not Resolved or Archived, and has not been addressed by formal enforcement.

You may have noticed one of the City's elevated water tanks visible from the I-10 corridor received a facelift in 2020 — but that's not all. This 750,000-gallon tank received a complete restoration to remove the old coatings inside and out and provide a new finish that is expected to last more than 20 years. Water tanks serve a greater purpose than providing a location marker. They ensure the delivery of high-quality drinking water to homes and businesses across our community, control water system pressure and provide sufficient water reserves for the daily peak demands and fire protection.

TALLAHASSEE'S DRINKING WATER

SOURCE & TREATMENT

For more than 120 years, the City of Tallahassee has provided our community with clean, reliable, and safe drinking water.

Currently, the City of Tallahassee operates 27 deep wells drilled directly into the Floridan aquifer. Because of the excellent quality of our water source, only limited treatment is required. Each of the well sources are treated with chlorine for disinfection purposes and fluoride to improve dental health.

Six of the 27 wells use carbon filtration to remove certain chemicals found in the aquifer in those locations. One well (offline for 2020) provides Greensand filtration to remove naturally occurring iron and manganese from the source water, and another well provides treatment to sequester iron and manganese in the distribution system.

Source Water Assessment & Protection

In 2020, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The assessment was conducted to provide information about

any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. There are 47 potential sources of contamination with low to high susceptibility levels. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp, or they can be obtained by contacting the City's Water Quality Laboratory at 850-891-1200.

In the Future

It may be necessary to make improvements to your water system that will benefit all our customers. The costs of these improvements may be reflected in the rates, and adjustments may be necessary to address these improvements. Thank you for allowing us to continue providing your family with clean, quality water.

Please DO NOT FLUSH your unused/unwanted medications down toilets or sink drains. More information is available at http://www.dep.state.fl.us/waste/categories/medications/pages/disposal.htm

2021 WATER QUALITY REPORT | 5

TALLAHASSEE'S DRINKING WATER

UNDERSTANDING SOURCE WATER QUALITY

According to federal and state laws, rules and regulations, the City of Tallahassee routinely monitors for over 80 contaminants in our drinking water.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

  1. Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
  2. Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
  3. Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses.
  4. Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
  5. Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally oc- curring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.

To ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders,

some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium

and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.

TEST RESULTS

UNDERSTANDING OUR WATER QUALITY DATA TABLE

In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms, we've provided

the following definitions:

  • Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
  • Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
  • Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.
  • Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
  • Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level Goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
  • “ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
  • Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (µg/l): one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
  • Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l): one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.
  • Picocurie per liter (pCi/L): measure of the radioactivity in water.

The contaminants listed in the following tables are the only contaminants detected in our drinking water. The City of Tallahassee routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to federal and state laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2020. Data obtained before January 1, 2020, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.

Lead and Drinking Water

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. The City of Tallahassee is responsible for providing high-quality drinking water but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using tap water for drinking or cooking.

If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791 or at www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.

If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled City Commission meetings. Call 850-891-1200 or visit Talgov.com for the schedule of Commission meeting dates and times.

We advise that you ask locals or hotel staff about the water quality. Also, note that different cities have different water mineral contents.

Sources and Resources

Tallahassee Tap Water

Tallahassee, Florida, has a long history of buying bottled water, but it is time to start shopping for your drinking water as well. The quality of the tap water in Florida has been under severe scrutiny lately. Many cities have had to dump or run out of their tap water due to contamination from all sorts of outside sources. You don’t want to buy some bottled water, either, because those types aren’t regulated as carefully as the water you get from your kitchen faucet. Some studies have shown that some bottled waters are worse for you than regular tap water.

So what can you do? First of all, you can buy a cleaner that will clean up your tap water, at least. That’s the best way to go about making sure that your water is of the highest quality possible. Another option is to buy a good home water filter system, which will give you excellent quality water throughout the whole house, for a few hundred dollars. Some great systems on the market will even take care of the showerhead.

Finally, make sure that you know where your water comes from. If you live in a rural area with no public water utility, the quality may be terrible. If you have a municipal utility, such as town water or county water, you probably have some quality water level because those areas usually have a treatment plant.
