Drinking Water Reports
Although Leon County is not directly responsible for generating drinking water reports, residents can find information about their drinking water through their utility provider, City of Tallahassee or Talquin Electric Cooperative. Residents on private well-water are responsible for drinking water safety testing. For information on how to test your own private well, contact to the Florida Department of Health at (850) 245-4250 or AskEH@flhealth.gov.

The City of Tallahassee
The City of Tallahassee routinely monitors for contaminates in drinking water according to State and Federal laws, rules and regulations. Contaminates that the City tests for include: lead, copper, volatile organic contaminates, radioactive contaminants, disinfectants and disinfection by-products and inorganic contaminants. To ensure the safety of our tap water, the Environmental Protection Agency sets regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminates in water provided by public water systems.
