Important Information about your Drinking Water

Notice of Violation – Disinfection by-products (Trihalomethanes – TTHM)

The City of Orange City’s Public Water System (PWS) requires testing for certain disinfection by-products in our drinking water. Disinfection by-products are the result of applying chlorine to the finished drinking water to kill off any remaining potentially harmful bacteria and viruses making this water safe for consumption. However, the chlorine added to protect you from harmful bacteria and viruses present in non-treated water reacts with natural organic matter found in the Floridan Aquifer and forms these by-products.
