Carlsbad Municipal Water District’s annual Water Quality Report shows the tap water it provides to about 29,000 homes and businesses meets all state and federal water quality standards for drinking water. The report covers water provided in 2016.
“Our residents should feel confident in the water we provide,” said Wendy Chambers, general manager of the Carlsbad Municipal Water District, a subsidiary district of the City of Carlsbad. “People might not realize that their water undergoes rigorous testing— even more than bottled water.”
The report includes detailed water quality test results and explains where Carlsbad’s drinking water comes from. It is available now on the city’s website at www.carlsbadca.gov/water-quality-report. Carlsbad Municipal Water District customers may request a copy be mailed to their homes by calling 760-438-2722.
All California water agencies are required to produce a water quality report annually by July 1. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the State Department of Public Health regulate the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems.
The Carlsbad Municipal Water District delivers water and recycled water to about 85 percent of the City of Carlsbad. The southeastern part of the city is served by the Olivenhain Municipal Water District and the Vallecitos Water District.
