Our Water Supply

Working Together to Protect Our Water Supply

Residents in the ECUA service area enjoy an excellent source of potable water supplied from the prolific and high-quality Sand-and-Gravel aquifer. Because this aquifer does not have a confining layer above it, virtually everything that falls on the ground has the potential to affect the quality of our water supply. ECUA is well aware of this threat to the groundwater and works diligently with Escambia County and the City of Pensacola in strengthening their Wellhead Protection Ordinances. We also urge all residents to remember to dispose of motor oils, chemicals, and other hazardous waste in an ecologically responsible manner.
Protecting this precious resource is vital and conserving our water is just as important. Click here for more information and conservation tips.

2018 Florida Panhandle Best Tasting Water Winner

ECUA's drinking water was selected as the "2018 Best Tasting Water" in a taste-test competition held in Destin, Florida, in March 2018. The annual event was sponsored by Region IX of the Florida Section/American Water Works Association (FS/AWWA). This is the fifth time that ECUA has been recognized as having the best-tasting water in the Florida Panhandle since 2005.

Participation in the Best Tasting Drinking Water Contest is open only to water providers within the geographical region who have not experienced any violations in the federal or state safe drinking water regulatory requirements. Each water sample was evaluated for taste, odor, and clarity by a panel of judges.
