Tamarac's Water Treatment Plant ensures that Tamarac residents are provided with an adequate amount of high quality, drinkable water that meets and exceeds all applicable federal and state regulatory standards.
During treatment, our Water Treatment Plant partially softens the water. The finished water is considered neither hard nor soft, with a hardness of approximately 60 mg/L or 3.5 grains.
In addition, fluoride is added to the drinking water because drinking water with the right amount of fluoride has been shown to reduce the risk of cavities, especially for children. There is approximately 0.8 mg/L of fluoride in the drinking water.
For more information regarding water quality, please contact the Water Treatment Plant Lab at (954) 597-3775. You can view the latest Water Quality Report here.
If water is shut off for construction work, after the service has been restored, boiling of water is only necessary as determined by the Department of Health. We will notify you if this is the case. To safely boil water, bring it to a rolling boil for 3 minutes and allow to cool completely before using.
