About the Testing and Reporting Data

A state-certified laboratory regularly tests your water for more than 100 contaminants! The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the State Water Resources Control Board (State Board) set the testing schedule. Tests may be done on a weekly, monthly or annual basis. Test results are then compared to state and federal standards to confirm your water meets all drinking water health standards. We are required to report all contaminants at levels above the detection limit. In the water quality chart, we have only included each contaminant exceeding the detection limit, and the MCL and PHG, AL, NL, or MCLG as set by the California EPA.
