What should I do if I want my household water tested?

The United States has one of the safest public water supplies in the world and the City of North Miami routinely meets all county, state, and federal guidelines. While the City of North Miami has the utmost confidence in the water it produces and distributes, it is not responsible for household plumbing and therefore only tests the water at the service connection. However, if you are concerned about contaminants in your home’s water system, contact the Florida Department of Health laboratory website to obtain a list of certified laboratories. Depending on how many contaminants you wish to test for, a water test can cost from $15 to hundreds of dollars. The Safe Drinking Water Hotline can give you information on testing methods.


If you want the water tested at the service connection, contact Winson Water Plant at 305-953-2854.
