Drinking Water Quality Report (Consumer Confidence Report)
Each year prior to July 1st, public water systems begin the task of coordinating data to include in their annual Consumer Confidence Report (CCR). The rationale for this report is that you, as a consumer, have the right to know where your drinking water comes from and what is in it. The report is designed to help you make informed choices that affect your health and the health of your family. It also encourages you to consider the challenges of delivering safe drinking water and to better understand the true costs involved in its delivery.
