Where Our Water Comes From in the Town of Palm Beach

Our Town  |  Utilities  |  February 12, 2019

The Town of Palm Beach gets its water, by contract, from the City of West Palm Beach.  It’s pumped under the Intracoastal to the island.

WPTV Channel 5 just did a special report on the West Palm water system and how they protect it from blue-green algae and other contaminants.

WPTV-NBC5 Special Report — West Palm Beach has a unique drinking water system compared to other municipalities because the city uses surface water. The two main sources are Lake Okeechobee and Grassy Waters Everglades Preserve.

The advantage to traditional systems, according to city officials, is water replenishes itself naturally and parts of the Everglades are protected and maintained.
