Providing Quality Water is Our Mission
Safe, clean drinking water is what we deliver 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week. When Western customers turn on their faucets they can count on their water being purified, tested and monitored to protect their health and safety.
Western Operations team members take daily water samples from throughout the district to ensure our water measures up to state, federal and local purity standards.
|These water samples are tested in the field to detect the presence of disinfectants and other parameters for quality control. Samples are also delivered to our California State Certified Laboratory for further microbiological testing, as well as organic and inorganic chemical testing. The lab uses scientific devices as simple as pH meters or as complex as gas chromatographs and mass spectrometers to assure that Western meets or exceeds required water quality standards.|
|The District compiles this critical and required water quality data throughout the year and provides it to our customers in the annual 2016 Water Quality Report. This report is distributed to all Western drinking water customers by July first of each year.
