Company’s water quality continues to meet or surpass standards for drinking water
Davenport, IA (May 24, 2019) – Iowa American Water announced today that the company’s 2018 Water Quality Reports are now accessible through its website at https://amwater.com/iaaw/water-quality/water-quality-reports, as well as via printed copies that can be mailed to customers. The information in the reports confirms that again this year, Iowa American Water has met or surpassed all standards set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which are enforced by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.
Also known as the Consumer Confidence Report, this report compares the quality of water supplied by Iowa American Water against standards established by the EPA and Iowa Department of Natural Resources. The report describes local drinking water source information and shares test results, including all substances detected in the water and their levels.
“Certainly we prioritize the quality and reliability of our customers’ water and the safety of their family and employees— our teams of water quality, plant operation, and field service professionals work hard every day to ensure the highest quality water and service,” said Iowa American Water President Randy Moore. “But we also care a great deal about making sure our customers have everything they need to be informed and responsible consumers.”
By providing two easy ways for customers to receive confirmation that their drinking water meets all federal standards for water quality, the company is also working to increase the public’s understanding of the value of water.
“We know that an educated customer is one who will place a higher value on this precious resource and who will have a greater tendency to do his or her part in protecting it. We’re proud to share these reports with the public in order to encourage greater awareness, appreciation and conservation.” In addition to online access, customers can request a hard copy be mailed to them by contacting customer service at 1-866-641-2108.
