Our Water Source
Underneath Osceola County lies one of the largest pristine reservoirs of fresh groundwater in the country, the Floridian Aquifer. Water from this aquifer is of consistently high quality and is used as the source of potable water for the Toho Water Authority water system. The aquifer is recharged by rainfall on the Lake Wales Ridge (US 27) in Osceola, Polk and Lake Counties that is filtered through hundreds of feet of sand and rock in a natural cleansing process. Because of its high quality, the water we use needs little or no treatment other than aeration to remove hydrogen sulfide (rotten egg odor) and is chlorinated for disinfection.
Bringing You High Quality Water
Toho Water Authority delivers to you water that is constantly tested for compliance with federal and state standards and regulations.
