Your Water Utility

The best way to find out more information about your drinking water is to contact your local utility. The more you know about your water utility, the better position you will be in to contribute positively to the quality of your drinking water. Begin by asking your utility these questions:

  • What is the source of the drinking water supply? (river, lake, aquifer, etc.)
  • How are state standards different from those at the federal level? More comprehensive?
  • Does the utility monitor for unregulated contaminants, particularly those likely to be found in the area?
  • How is the water treated?
  • What is the utility track record for complying with Maximum Contaminant Levels and all monitoring and reporting requirements of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA)?
