2012 Water Quality Report

2012 Water Quality Report

Montgomery County Environmental Services is pleased to announce that the County has once again met or exceeded all drinking water safety and testing standards, as set forth by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.  Citizens can learn more in the 2012 Drinking Water Quality Report, which contains information about public safety and health, drinking water sources, and water contaminant monitoring and testing.

“Using our annual Drinking Water Quality Report, our customers can make informed decisions about their drinking water,” says Patrick Turnbull, director of Environmental Services. “Citizens have a right to know where their water comes from, and to understand how we treat water to protect public health.”

The E.P.A. requires all community water systems to produce a drinking water quality report, also called a consumer confidence report.

“Our dedicated and hardworking employees are the reason our customers enjoy such high quality, affordable drinking water,” Turnbull says.

Montgomery County Environmental Services distributes drinking water to more than 82,000 customers. Approximately 4,400 water samples were taken from the distribution system and water treatment facilities, which were analyzed for more than 14,000 tests to ensure quality.

Montgomery County Environmental Services purchases its drinking water from the City of Dayton Department of Water, which provided some drinking water quality data for the report.
