Water Quality Reports

We take water quality very seriously. To learn more about the water quality in your area, click on the link below for your water system. You will find two files for each system. The first is a Basic Water Quality Summary that includes the water quality information that customers most commonly request. If you want more information, we invite you to view the Detailed Water Quality Report (also called the Consumer Confidence Report or CCR) that contains more information including where the water comes from, any contaminants that were detected, and additional educational information.

Wise Water Use

Making water conservation part of your daily routine will save both water and money every day. Here are a few easy tips you can follow:

Outside your home:

  • Water your lawn only when it needs it. An easy way to tell if your lawn needs water is to simply walk across the grass. If you leave footprints, it’s time to water.
  • Make the most of your watering by watering in the early morning. As much as 30 percent of water can be lost to evaporation by watering during midday.
  • Plan for fewer, deep-soaking waterings to encourage deep root growth and stronger turf.
  • Set your lawn mower one notch higher to make your lawn more drought-tolerant.
  • Use drip irrigation hoses to water plants, and water in the early morning or evening.
  • Consider using porous pavement (gravel is a good example) instead of asphalt for driveways and walkways, the rain will soak into the soil instead of running off and contributing to erosion.
  • Use a broom instead of a hose to clean your sidewalk, driveway, or patio.
  • Plant appropriately for your local climate. Check with local nurseries for non-invasive, drought-tolerant plants.
  • Check your water meter before and after a two-hour period when no water is being used. If the meter changes at all, you probably have a leak.

Inside your home:

  • Run dishwashers and clothes washers only when they are full. If you have a water-saver cycle, use it.
  • Adjust the water level of your clothes washer so it matches your load size.
  • Regularly check your toilet, faucets, and pipes for leaks. American Water offers leak detection kits. If you find a leak, have it fixed as soon as possible
  • Consider water and energy-efficient appliances. The USEPA reports that EPA-certified Energy Star washing machines may use 35% less water per load. Water-saving shower heads, toilets and faucet aerators can also help cut your water usage.
  • Insulate exposed water pipes with pre-slit foam insulation. You’ll enjoy hot water faster and avoid wasting water while it heats up.
  • Keep a bottle of cold tap water in the refrigerator. You’ll avoid the cost and environmental impact of bottled water and you’ll have cold water available in the summer without running the faucet.
  • Turn off the tap while brushing your teeth or washing dishes in the sink.
