Public and Private Drinking Water 

The Environmental Health staff provides chemical and biological testing of public water supplies to ensure quality. Our office works closely with Department of Environmental Protection and North West Florida Water Management in an effort to resolve water complaints.

We also offer testing of private water wells for bacteria, lead, nitrates and other contaminants. For more information, contact Environmental Health at 850-983-5275 or email

You can also download and complete a Water Sample Questionnaire (PDF-182KB) and email it to the above address.
