2011 WATER QUALITY REPORTS
Talquin Electric Cooperative, Inc. is pleased to provide you with this year's Annual Water Quality Report. We want to keep you informed about the excellent water and services we have delivered to you over the past year. Our goal is, and always has been, to provide you a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. Our groundwater source is deep wells which draw from the Florida Aquifer System. The Florida Aquifer is the source of drinking water for the majority of the water systems in Florida. Because of the excellent quality of our water, the only treatment required is chlorine for disinfection purposes. All Talquin Electric's water systems are routinely monitored for contaminants according to federal and state laws. The tables listed below show the results of our monitoring for the period January 1 to December 31, 2011. As authorized and approved by EPA, the state has reduced monitoring requirements for certain contaminants to less often than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants are not expected to vary significantly from year to year. Some of the data, though representative, may be more than one year old. The source of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) includes rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. We want our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, contact Talquin Electric's water services superintendent at 850-562-2115. There are no regularly scheduled public meetings related to water services; however, if you wish to meet with a Talquin Electric representative, please call the superintendent of plant operations at the number above to schedule an appointment.
