Water


email     2008 Water Quality Report

To have water or sewer lines located
Call Sunshine at 811 at least 48 hours before you plan to dig.

Water leaks - Call Public Works at (850) 983-5410 to report the problem. Please note that the City personnel will repair leaks on the City side of the meter. A leak on the customer side of the meter is normally a customer problem that the customer will need to fix.

Water Outages - The City of Milton will advertise any scheduled water outage in local papers, on local radio and television stations. Any water outage not scheduled is normally the result of one of our lines being cut by a contractor.

New Water Meters - Please call Public Works (850) 983-5410 for current pricing of water meter connections. There is usually a 2 week waiting period to have the water connection made.

Where does our water come from?

Water TowerThe City of Milton's Drinking Water comes from wells that tap the pristine sand & gravel aquifer. The water is treated as it is pumped by injecting lime for stabilization/corrosion control and chlorine for disinfection.

COMMON CUSTOMER COMPLAINTS:
Cloudy Water
If your water is cloudy or a milky color please do the following:
1 Draw water in a clear glass container
2.  Watch water clear
3.  If water clears from bottom to top, this means that it is air in the water and the water is safe to drink.
4.  If water does not clear please call the Water/Wastewater Treatment Department at (850) 983-5461 or the Public Works Desk at (850) 983-5410, so we may make an appointment to come to your home.

Particles in Water
Please call the Water/Wastewater Treatment Department at (850) 983-5461 or the Public Works Desk at (850) 983-5410, so we may make an appointment to come to your home
