Orlando’s water is pumped in from the freshwater Floridan Aquifer that sits beneath Orange County. The groundwater in the aquifer is mostly rainwater that filters naturally through sand and rock. While Orlando has high-quality groundwater, it must be treated with chlorine, which can affect the taste, and hydrogen sulfide must be removed before it’s suitable for drinking.
Chlorination — Normal drinking water is treated with chlorine for disinfection purposes. While the water is clean and safe to drink, it may have a bad smell or taste from chlorination.
