Titusville Water Quality Report
 

TITUSVILLE, FL - (June 5, 2016) – Water quality has been in the news a lot lately, and the City of Titusville wants to assure its water customers about the quality of drinking water that it provides.
 
Each year Titusville publishes an annual water quality report, also known as a consumer confidence report (CCR). This year’s report focuses on the steps the City takes to ensure the quality of the water it provides and ways that consumers can help to ensure the quality of water once it enters their homes.
 
One of the tips listed in the report to ensure water quality in your home is to only use cold tap water for drinking or cooking. Hot tap water should not be used as it may contain metals, sediment, and bacteria that build up in the water heater.
 
Maureen Phillips, Water Conservation and Public Outreach Manager, noted that one of the first things she asks someone when they complain their water tastes “funny” is whether or not they use any water filter cartridges. “Filters usually are continuously damp and don’t get exposed to light, that makes them a perfect breeding ground for organisms that can affect the taste and quality of your water,” Phillips explained. Often in order to save money or simply because they forget, consumers fail to change out their filters on a regular basis. An often overlooked filter is one that may be on the water line to your ice maker. Failure to maintain this filter can affect the taste of your ice cubes, which in turn affects the tastes of drinks.
 
Sean L. Stauffer, P.E., Titusville’s Water Resources Director, explained that this year’s report provides readers with much more than the required water quality information. “With all of the news about Flint and other water issues, we wanted Titusville water customers to feel confident about the safety of Titusville’s water.”
 
The 2016 edition of Titusville’s annual water quality report, The Water We Drink 2015, is available online at titusville.com/ccr or by going to the Water Resources Department’s main page on titusville.com. The report includes information on water sources and contaminant testing results.

For questions about water quality or the data presented in the report, Titusville customers should call (321) 567-3877.
