Palm Beach County Office of Inspector General releases investigative findings.

According to a new report by the Palm Beach County Office of Inspector General.

The city of Delray Beach failed to disclose to the Florida Department of Health a report of a resident potentially getting sick from drinking water mixed with reclaimed water.

The OIG was “unable to determine whether the reported illness was actually caused by the city’s drinking water, “according to the report.

The report states the OIG “found evidence that certain staff were aware of at least one report of sickness caused by the drinking water at the time the city falsely reported to FDOH on December 19, 2018 that no reports of sickness or illness had been received.

The city’s response to the investigation is included in the report.
