Water plant personnel and the water distribution staff take a great deal of pride in providing to our citizens the best-quality water possible. Constant testing and sam piing procedures help to ensure that the content and quality o! your water is color less, odorless and uniform in taste and appearance. The water plant, and the water 3roduced therein, meet and/or exceed all state and federal requirements Trainin(j and seminars keep personnel abreast of new technologies and procedures We are proud of the water we produce for the public and assure you that your water is of the best possible quality. The Safe Drinking Water (SWDA) Act was signed into law on December 16. 1974 The purpose of the law is to assure that the nation's water supply systems serving the public meet minimum national standards for the protection of public health. The SWDA covers all public water systems with piped water for human consump- tion with at least 16 service connections or a system that regularly serves at least 25 individuals. The SWDA directed the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to establish national ddnking water standards. These standards limit the amount of certain contaminants in bottled water, All drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to conta. at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not nec-essadly indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about the contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the EPA safe dnnking water hotline, 1-800-426 4791.
