At times your tap water can have an unusual odor, taste or appearance. In most cases, these aesthetic characteristics do not pose a public health threat. However, since an unusual odor, taste or appearance could be the first indication of a more serious situation, each occurrence must be taken seriously and investigated immediately. From the time your drinking water is disinfected at the well sites until it reaches your tap, there are multiple reasons that may change its appearance. Sometimes this happens as close as your home’s own plumbing.
When the U.S. Congress passed the 1996 Safe Drinking Water Act amendments, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was given the authority to require each community water system to provide each of their customers with a Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) every 12 months.
California community water system have been producing water quality reports since 1990. The annual Consumer Confidence Report covers various water quality issues, describes where your water comes from, discusses drinking water standards, and compares the quality of your drinking water to state and federal regulations.
Our 2019-2020 Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) & Annual Water Quality Reports are in and available for download.
