2018 Water Quality Report In 1996, amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Act made provisions for the Environmental Protection Agency to require all community Public Water Systems to provide their customers with an annual water quality report. Over 60,000 water systems throughout the United States delivered the first reports by October 19, 1999 and the second report by July 1, 2000. The report continues each year and must be delivered by July 1. The purpose of DPU’s Water Quality Report is to increase our customers’ understanding of drinking water and heighten awareness of the need to protect our precious water resources. Our 2018 Water Quality Report contains information about the quality of our drinking water and any potential risks associated with consuming it. It also helps the customer understand the correlation between the substances in drinking water and activities that may contaminate the water supply. The Department of Public Utilities has been protecting public health and providing clean, safe drinking water to its customers for over 100 years. In an effort to continue our positive relationship and commitment to service, the Department of Public Utilities welcomes the opportunity to provide this annual water quality report to you. The Annual Water Quality Report will be available exclusively online at http://www. orbgdpu.com/about-us/water/water-quality-reports. However, if you would like to receive a printed version of the report or if you have any questions concerning your drinking water, please contact the Water Division at 803-268-4404. We will be happy to assist you. Please look for future updates about all the services that the Department of Public Utilities provides as we strive to continue to be your complete utility source.
