ALERT as Noticed in The Bee
The Town of Belleair Water Department ran an ad in The Bee on March 4, 2021, noticing a monitoring requirement violation for Belleair's water plant. This incident was the result of the Town ordering an incomplete set of samples for routine water supply testing in late 2020. The samples have since been collected as required. This notice is required by the State of Florida but is in no way indicative of any water quality issues. If you have any questions, please contact David Brown, Director of Water Utilities, at (727) 588-3795 x 3.
The Town of Belleair Water Department is responsible for sustaining, producing, maintaining, and delivering a high-quality water supply to the residents of the Town of Belleair. We are proud to be one of the six cities in Pinellas County to operate out of an independent water treatment plant, and we pride ourselves in putting our residents first.
For life safety emergencies, always dial 911. However, if you witness a water emergency, please report it immediately by calling the Belleair Police Department at (727) 582-6177. From there, you will be dispatched to a Belleair officer, who will then contact the on-call Water Department employee to assist. Calling early helps us catch and repair issues before they get out of hand.
Water emergencies may include water main breaks, large leaks exterior of your property, hydrant leaks, or other damages to Belleair water lines or materials. Leaks inside of your home are the property owner’s responsibility.
Environmental, social, and economic sustainability are core values of the water department. We continue to work on providing this valuable resource in a responsible way so that Belleair residents can continue to enjoy this service for years to come and at an affordable price. Identification of alternative water sources, regulation of potable water usage, and exploration of water technologies that focus on conservation and efficiency are imperative for the long-term health of the water system.
The town continues to receive its water through traditional pumping and treatment methods. Belleair’s seven wells pump untreated groundwater from the aquifer, which is then treated and stored at the town’s water plant. We are currently exploring the possibility of changing our treatment method to a membrane treatment system known as Reverse Osmosis.
Maintaining and Delivering
Continuous upgrading and maintenance of the distribution system ensures that an adequate supply of water can be delivered safely from the town’s water plant to the residents of Belleair for consumption, irrigation, and fire protection.
