Water Quality Reports Consumer Confidence Report As an amendment of the Safe Drinking Water Act, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires water suppliers, or community water systems that serve at least 25 customers year round and/or have 15 service connections, to issue a water quality report annually to its customers. The purpose of this requirement is to "improve public health by providing educational material to allow consumers to make educated decisions regarding any potential health risks pertaining to the quality, treatment and management of their drinking water supply" (Consumer Confidence Report Rule: A Quick Reference Guide, USEPA). This water quality report, also known as a Consumer Confidence Report (CCR), must be delivered to all customers by July 1st every year. Each customer must be mailed or delivered a copy of the CCR annually. In addition, the EPA encourages water systems to post the report on the Internet and in public places including libraries, schools and other public buildings. Certain information must be included in this report, including: • Contact information for the water supplier • Sources of water • Definitions of significant water treatment-related terms • Table of summarized data pertaining to regulated and unregulated contaminants • Information on Cryptosporidium and other contaminants, if applicable • Explanation of violations, if applicable • Educational material including health effects of contaminants to vulnerable populations The Montgomery Water Works issued its first Consumer Confidence Report in 1999. Previous CCRs issued are available online for review.
