Water Quality

 

The drinking water systems must comply with many federal and state rules and regulations covering such things as wellhead protection, water quality, financial management, emergency preparedness, and record keeping. Of course, primary among these is water quality. Testing requirements vary by system size and water source. The Water Department performs tests to ensure your water is safe. See the Consumer Confidence Report for your service area for test results. The following are examples of the testing conducted for your safety:

  • Daily Chlorine residuals, fluoride levels
  • Weekly Total coliform bacteria across the system
  • Annual and Tri-Annual Nitrates, volatile organic compounds, synthetic organic compounds, lead, and copper
