TARPON SPRINGS – The city of Tarpon Springs’ new Reverse Osmosis Water Facility is fully operational, replacing water previously provided by Pinellas County Utilities through Tampa Bay Water, the city announced Dec. 2.
Water from this facility is now the city’s primary water supply. The new facility began full production Sept. 12. It produces an average of 2.9 million gallons of drinking water per day.
The facility is able to provide a consistent supply of high-quality drinking water through the use of state-of-the-art treatment methods, including reverse osmosis. The water continues to meet all federal and state standards.
The city’s water supply currently uses monochloramines as the primary disinfectant to meet EPA and FDEP requirements. On Jan. 2, Tarpon Springs will switch to free-chlorine as the primary disinfectant for improved water quality and simplified operations.
