The City of North Port Utilities Department wants to let residents know that the 2012 Annual Water Quality Report (also known as the Consumer Confidence Report or CCR) is now available. The 2012 CCR contains important information about the source, quality, and treatment of your drinking water and is now available at The City is pleased to announce that the 2012 report indicates that North Port City drinking water meets and exceeds all federal and state drinking water quality standards.

In the years past, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has required municipalities to produce and mail a report on the quality of the community’s drinking water to its residents each year. EPA regulations have now changed. While communities must still prepare the report, they can utilize other, less expensive ways to make the information available to the public. North Port Utilities has created the electronic report in-house, posted it on the City website, and is advertising the URL link on all outgoing bills. “This eco-friendly change in requirements not only helps us conserve our natural resources and further enhances the department’s everyday “Go Green” efforts, but it also saves the City a significant amount in production and mailing costs each year,” explains Cindi Mick, Director of North Port Utilities.

The simple, yet visually compelling site is designed to provide consumers direct access to important information that is easy to understand and navigate. The centerpiece of the report is a comprehensive chart summarizing the City’s year-round testing and monitoring of water in 2012. Also included are details about the sources and quality of water the City delivers to customers, as well as other articles of interest and tips such as water conservation, Go Green, and project information updates.

Printed copies of the report are also available by calling North Port Utilities at (941) 240-8000. Customer Care Representatives are available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Copies of the report are also available at the library and municipal offices.

We would like residents to please feel free to contact North Port Utilities with any questions or concerns regarding their CCR at 941-240-8000.
