How My Water is Treated

Image of treated waterClearwater ensures that drinking water delivered to our consumers meets or exceeds all drinking water standards. The city produces its own water and purchases the rest from Pinellas County Utilities to meet the water demand of city residents.

At Reverse-Osmosis Plant No. 1, water from wells in the Upper Floridan Aquifer is filtered to remove suspended solids such as iron. Then, it is processed by reverse-osmosis to remove selected dissolved molecules, including hardness-causing salts.

At Reverse-Osmosis Plant No. 2, brackish water from the lower portions of the Upper Floridan Aquifer is treated by reverse-osmosis to remove selected dissolved molecules, including hardness-causing salts.

At Water Plant No. 3, raw water from the Upper Floridan Aquifer is treated then blended with water supplied by Pinellas County Utilities.
