Man testing system appurtenances

The Water Distribution Team maintains the City's water distribution infrastructure that enables the City of Stuart to distribute potable water to its customers and ensure an adequate supply of pretreated water is readily available with sufficient pressure to meet established health department standards, and ensure specific fire protection standards are met.

As part of the Utilities Department, we have personnel on call twenty-four hours per day, seven days a week.
