The following information was provided by The City of Plantation in the Annual Water Quality Report for Water testing performed in 2010.
Plantation water comes from a network of sixteen groundwater wells that reach 110 feet into the Biscayne Aquifer.Â The wells are located so that the land can still be used for parks.
The Plantation water you drink is regularly tested to ensure quality.Â Even with laboratory methods that can find ever smaller amounts of substances in water, Plantation continues to be a utility that can proudly and truthfully say its water is the best.
The water is pumped through specially designed composite membranes with pores smaller than the particles of undesirable elements of the groundwater, thus eliminating impurities. This process replaces chemical softening.Â Membrane softening processes water to the extent that the water is of such high quality that many of the health and aesthetic concerns of chemical softening are eliminated.Â Plantation water is also fluoridated and disinfected.
This advanced treatment process provides the highest quality water available anywhere : better than bottled, better than any other source.
