RIVERSIDE, CA – The annual report card on Western Municipal Water District's water quality is in and the results reflect, as expected, top marks for clean, safe drinking water.

In June, the annual Water Quality Report—also known as the Consumer Confidence Report—was released. The report describes, in detail, the quality of water customers received in their home during 2018. Western has again surpassed every federal and state drinking water standard, as set forth by the State Water Resources Control Board’s Division of Drinking Water and the United States Environmental Protection Agency.

“Western takes great pride in delivering the highest quality water available,” said General Manager Craig Miller. “When customers turn on their tap, they can count on their water being safe to drink—purified, tested and monitored to protect their health and safety.”

The State Water Resources Control Board Division of Drinking Water requires water agencies such as Western to provide all customers with an annual report on the quality of drinking water and to show how it meets federal and state drinking water standards.

This year, Western is making the report available to customers online. All customers will be receiving a mailed postcard and printed, mailed copies are available upon request.

“Due to a change in the law and a commitment to keep costs low, Western is posting the report on its website and mailing notices of its availability to customers,” said Miller.

With a 100 percent reliability rate that ensures water and sewer services, Western continuously works to ensure customers have a reliable supply of high-quality water at a reasonable price. The District’s operations team take daily water samples from throughout the District to ensure its water measures up to local, state, and federal purity standards.
