LVMWD Meets or Exceeds Water Quality Standards

  • by

Each year, LVMWD collects over 1,200 samples from their distribution system and conducts more than 11,000 tests on those samples. The results, along with those from the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) on the treated source water imported by LVMWD, are compiled into their annual Consumer Confidence Report/Water Quality Report (CCR/WQR.)

This report is distributed to customers and residents in the service area by July each year, in accordance with federal and state regulations.

The CCR/WQR is an annual report detailing the quality and safety of the water they deliver to their customers and provides information on various contaminants and their regulatory levels. This transparency assures customers of their water’s quality. These tests are conducted in the District’s state-certified lab at the Tapia Water Reclamation Facility by highly trained and certified staff.

The report also includes testing data from MWD on the water from the Jensen Treatment Plant, further ensuring transparency and building trust in products and services within their communities.

This year the report once again showed that LVMWD water met or exceeded all federal and state drinking water regulations. These regulations, set by the Environmental Protection Agency and California Division of Drinking Water, ensure the water they serve is safe and clean. Our water is as clean, and often cleaner and safer, than bottled water, which can contain microplastics and plastic-related chemicals. Additionally, the CCR/WQR offers valuable information on LVMWD, lead and copper testing, and emerging contaminants such as PFAS/PFOA.

Their mission is to provide high-quality water service in a cost-effective and environmentally sensitive manner. To be more cost-effective, they  transitioned to digital distribution of the report in 2019, reducing costs and improving accessibility. This year they continue to improve accessibility for visually impaired individuals who use adaptive screen readers with our online version of the report.

“We are always looking for ways to make District operations more effective, efficient, and accessible for all our customers while ensuring our customers have the important information on how the water we serve is monitored, tested and delivered in a way that ensures public health” stated LVMWD Board President Jay Lewitt.
