Water Testing for Pollution (Watch)

SB 1706 (Montford) specifies that if a governmental entity discovers or confirms that pollution exists in an area that could impact a private or multifamily water system or could impact a public water system not subject to the Florida Safe Drinking Water Act, and such pollution could result in a violation of state water quality standards, any potentially affected person may request the Department of Environmental Protection to test the water source for contamination relating to the pollution.
