We have released our 2013 Annual Water Quality Report, which shows, once again, that the water provided by MMWD meets, and in fact surpasses, all state and federal health regulations. The 2013 report
is available in English and Spanish on our website. Printed copies of the report can be requested by calling the Water Quality Lab at (415) 945-1550.
MMWD takes numerous steps to ensure that the drinking water we deliver to customers is of high quality, from managing and protecting our watershed lands, to employing proven treatment methods, to vigilant monitoring. Each year MMWD conducts more than 120,000 water quality tests from watershed to faucet.
We report water quality information to our customers annually as a matter of district policy and in compliance with regulations set by the California Department of Public Health and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The regulations encompass both primary standards, which affect health, and secondary standards, which affect the odor, taste and appearance of the water.
In the past, we mailed the full water quality report to approximately 110,000 Marin addresses. Beginning this year, new regulations permit MMWD to distribute the report electronically, reducing our costs and our impact on the environment.
