The Well Surveillance group manages several programs to identify and monitor areas in Florida where contaminated drinking water is suspected, which may pose a threat to public health. The Well Surveillance Section is composed of the State Underground Petroleum Environmental Response Act (SUPER Act), Drinking Water Toxics Program (Toxics), Drycleaner Solvent Cleanup Program (DSCP). The section coordinates with the County Health Departments (CHDs) to locate potable wells and conduct water sampling for contaminants of concern. Chemical analysis of water samples is conducted at the Department's laboratory in Jacksonville.
