Water

The City of Milton's Drinking Water comes from wells that tap the pristine sand and gravel aquifer. The water is treated as it is pumped by injecting lime for stabilization / corrosion control and chlorine for disinfection.
Common Customer Complaints
Cloudy Water
If your water is cloudy or a milky color please do the following:
  1. Draw water in a clear glass container
  2. Watch water clear
  3. If water clears from bottom to top, this means that it is air in the water and the water is safe to drink.
  4. If water does not clear please call the Water / Wastewater Treatment Department at 850-983-5461 or the Public Works Desk at 850-983-5410, so we may make an appointment to come to your home.

The City of Milton will advertise any scheduled water outage in local papers, on local radio and television stations. Any water outage not scheduled is normally the result of one of our lines being cut by a contractor.
