Our water sources are the Biscayne aquifer and the Floridan aquifer.
The Biscayne aquifer is located approximately 10 to 200 feet below ground and is composed of porous limestone rock, which contains many tiny cracks and holes. This aquifer is replenished when the rain percolates through the ground. Water from the Biscayne aquifer is treated by lime softening or nanofiltration processes.
The Floridan aquifer is a deep aquifer located approximately 1,250 feet below ground. Water from this aquifer is brackish and is processed with reverse osmosis, which removes high concentrations of salt and other contaminants.
