Under the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is responsible for setting national limits for hundreds of substances in drinking water. The EPA also specifies various treatment processes that water facilities must undergo in order to remove these substances. Water treatment monitoring is continually performed to ensure drinking water is meeting regulatory standards. The EPA uses this data to ensure that the consumers are receiving clean water and to verify that states are enforcing the laws that regulate drinking water.
This publication conforms to the regulation under the SDWA which requires water utilities to provide detailed water quality information to service customers annually. We our committed to providing you with this information about your water supply because customers who are well informed are our best allies in supporting improvements necessary to maintain the highest quality drinking water standards.
Water Quality Control
