Providing clean, safe drinking water is a top priority at Tampa Bay Water. The drinking water we provide our member governments is safe: it meets or is better than all local, state and federal drinking water regulations.
The water crisis in Flint, Mich., may lead residents to question water quality in the Tampa Bay region. The water quality issues in Flint are due to corrosive water that dissolves lead and other harmful agents in pipelines and fixtures. Tampa Bay Water takes multiple steps to ensure its water is stable and not corrosive, and we monitor our water quality to ensure it meets the highest standards before it is delivered to our members.
