About Us

FlowFlorida:   Friends of Locally Owned Water.

Mission:

FlowFlorida is a coalition of citizens from across Florida working to return public water supplies to local ownership to ensure clean, safe water to every resident at a reasonable rate.

The coalition is currently fighting the poor water quality, high rates, and inadequate customer service that Aqua Utilities Florida provides its thousands of customers across the state. As part of our campaign to hold Aqua accountable, Flow is committed to educating decision makers and the general public about Aqua’s track record.

Flow members believe in the undeniable truth that water is an essential part of a healthy body and is dedicated to ensuring safe, affordable water for every citizen.
