​CHARLOTTE, NC (June 5, 2017) — For another year, Charlotte Water's drinking water report is good news as customers are being provided with safe and clean water.

The report summarizes monitoring results from tests taken throughout 2016. The report is one of the Safe Drinking Water Act requirements every public water supplier must do to maintain compliance with the law. 

Charlotte Water's state-certified water treatment staff treats an average of 102 million gallons of clean drinking water each day. Laboratory samples are analyzed to detect the smallest amounts of more than 150 possible contaminants. Charlotte Water posts monitoring results online. The results can be found at charlottewater.org by clicking on "Water Quality Information." A list of non-detected possible contaminants can be also be found on Charlotte Water's website.

Starting this week, the Drinking Water Quality Report will be mailed to every residential address in Mecklenburg County.

"We hope that by providing the report to every home we serve, customers can feel as confident as we do at Charlotte Water that the quality of drinking water in our community is great," said Barry Gullet, director of Charlotte Water.

Interested customers can read the full Consumer Confidence Report as well as view previous year water quality reports at the Charlotte Water website.
