Since your water comes from the pristine Floridan aquifer, most of the elements found in it occur naturally. However, we do add a little chlorine to the water to keep it clean as it travels through pipes on the way to your faucet.
Public Water Systems such as JEA’s are regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP). JEA takes stewardship of the community’s water supply very seriously and follows all regulatory requirements of the FDEP and EPA. JEA makes substantial investments to safely manage the water supply resource and to operate the system to meet water quality standards per all regulatory requirements.
JEA delivers more than 110 million gallons of water each day to our customers. We regularly test the water we send to customers to ensure its safety, as outlined by federal and state regulatory agencies. Our state-of-the-art technology monitors our water supply grid to bring fresh, clean water to your home. We work hard to help our customers learn how to conserve Northeast Florida's most precious resource, the Floridan aquifer, so that we may continue to benefit from it for generations to come.
