The United States Environmental Protection Agency has recognized the Metro Water Services Department for its water meeting or exceeding all EPA health standards as well as all state and federal requirements. 

The findings are in the 2011 Consumer Confidence Report, which has been mailed to all homes and businesses having accounts with Metro Water Services in response to the federal Safe Drinking Water Act of 1996. The act requires all public water systems to deliver a brief annual water quality report to their customers.

Metro Water Services monitors for approximately 105 regulated and unregulated contaminants in drinking water. 

Customers who receive Metro Water Services bills will receive a copy of the report in the mail. Customers who don’t receive water bills, such as apartment dwellers, can view the report here.
