Beginning in 1999, community water supply systems were required to provide an annual report describing the quality of their drinking water to consumers. Officially called Consumer Confidence Reports, the reports are required by the federal Safe Drinking Water Act Amendments of 1996.
About the Report
Consumer Confidence Reports provide consumers with information about the quality of their drinking water. This information has always been available to consumers who requested it from their water supplier. Now it is provided in an easy-to-read format.
The guiding principle behind making water quality reports public is that people have the right to know what is in their drinking water and the source of their water. Informed and involved citizens make wiser decisions.
