Water Quality Reports
One of the ways we act on our commitment to provide safe drinking water is through regular testing — at source, at our treatment plants, and as it travels through our watermains to your tap.
We also conduct comprehensive yearly testing as required by the U.S. EPA and state legislation. These results are published in Water Quality Reports (WQRs), also known as Consumer Confidence Reports.
You can learn more about water quality in the U.S. on the Water Quality page.
What Are Water Quality Reports (WQRs)?
Water Quality Reports are summaries of yearly testing done by EPA-certified laboratories. They inform the public about detected contaminants, their concentrations, and any potential health implications.
This testing helps us benchmark and monitor water quality changes over time, detect new contaminants, and keep our customers informed on an ongoing basis.
Water quality reporting also helps the EPA monitor water quality across the country to respond to new or increasing levels of environmental contaminants, such as Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS). These are a group of chemical contaminants appearing with increased frequency in drinking water sources.
Beginning in 2020, water utilities are required to test for Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS).
