Each year in the Spring, CVWD publishes a Water Quality Report reflecting the water quality details from the prior you. You can view the Water Quality Report here, or request a hard copy be mailed to you by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. This report is also known as a Consumer Confidence Report.
The water quality report explains the quality of CVWD water, CVWD's water sources, any detections of drinking water contaminants, and what is being done to correct the situation.
We are pleased to report that CVWD has an unblemished record in supplying our customers with clean, safe drinking water. We meet all standards set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, State Water Resources Control Board, and California Department of Public Health (DPH).
Refer to our water quality report for more information.
CVWD must notify you by newspaper, mail, radio, TV, or hand-delivery if your water does not meet U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, State Water Resources Control Board, or California Department of Public Health standards, or if there is a waterborne disease emergency. The notice will describe any precautions you need to take, such as using store bought water or boiling your water. If a public notice is published and distributed regarding your drinking water, please carefully read it and follow the instructions.
No, CVWD does not add fluoride to the drinking water supply. Fluoride occurs naturally in some CVWD water supplies at an average detection level of 0.33 part per million per our most recent Water Quality Report (2016). This and other information can be found in our water quality report. The water quality report information is comprised of sampling results from raw water sources such as purchased water, canyon water, and well water.
