Charlotte-Mecklenburg Utility Department Releases Drinking Water Quality Report

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.
