Drinking Water

The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) of 1974 set monitoring requirements for drinking water treatment plants. The amendments of 1986 were implemented to further improve the quality of our drinking water. The Safe Drinking Water Act requires water treatment facilities to provide consumers with annual water quality reports. Each contaminant is monitored on a different schedule which is determined by several factors; population served violation status, health risks, etc.

The attached report provides information about your source water and analysis results. Each report is compiled using compliance data from the year specified reporting period. Analyses were performed by our lab and subcontracted labs, all of which are state-certified. Each water treatment facility is required to perform daily, monthly, quarterly, bi-annual and/or annual analyses according to a schedule set forth by the state. Violations are reported to the state and appropriate notice given via local news stations and news publications.  Please view the current report attached below.
