CHARLOTTE –Beginning this week, the 2013 Drinking Water
Quality Report summary will be delivered to all residents of Mecklenburg County
as required by the EPA.
Once again, drinking water provided by the
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Utility Department meets and exceeds all state and
federal standards. CMUD conducted more than 150,000 tests on drinking water in
2013 to ensure that the water we all drink is safe. These tests look for more
than 150 substances, many of which occur naturally in the environment. Even the
highest contaminant levels detected were well below federal limits.
“Our annual water quality report reflects the high level of
confidence customers should have in the tap water they drink,” said Barry
Gullet, CMUD Director. “The continued investment the community makes in
its water system through infrastructure construction and maintenance, as well
as ensuring a workforce of well-trained staff, contributes to the excellent
results customers will see in this year’s report.”
The annual report compiled by Charlotte-Mecklenburg
Utility Department is required by the U.S. EPA and outlines the results of
the stringent testing done throughout the year.
