Merrick, N.Y. (June 28, 2018) – New York American Water’s annual Water Quality Reports for 2017 are now accessible through its website at newyorkamwater.com under Water Quality.
The annual water quality report details the quality of water supplied by New York American Water to customers in 2017 against the compliance standards established by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH), and the New York Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC). It describes local drinking water sources, testing conducted on the water, substances detected, and the levels of those substances. Commonly asked questions and answers concerning local drinking water are also included.
“We are proud to report that the drinking water supplied to our customers is once again of higher quality than required by federal, state and local standards,” stated Michael Nofi, New York American Water’s Manager of Water Quality and Environmental Compliance. “We work hard to ensure clean, safe and reliable water service is standard for the areas we serve. These annual results are a testament to our employees’ dedication to excellence, and we encourage our customers to read the information provided in these reports if they’d like to better understand the litany of tests continually performed to their drinking water.”
