The United States Environmental Protection Agency and California Department of Public Health set water quality standards and regulations in order to ensure that water districts, like East Valley Water District, continue to provide the highest quality of water to customers.
District staff takes regular samples for water quality and compliance with these standards and regulations. The District has always met these standards. Our laboratory costs for monitoring water quality in 2017 were $85,000. To view our annual testing results, please review our annual Consumer Confidence Reports.
