WEST PALM BEACH, FL – The City of West Palm encourages all water customers to review the latest Water Quality report. In compliance with the EPA, the City’s Department of Utilities issues yearly water quality reports, also known as Consumer Confidence Reports (CCRs). The report informs residents where their drinking water comes from, what is in it, and how safe it is.
- Explain violations, how they may affect your health, and how the problem will be fixed.
- Must show whether your water sources have more contaminants than the EPA recommends.
- Provide an educational statement on Cryptosporidium and how people with weakened immune systems can avoid the parasite.
The report also provides test results on contaminants, disinfectants, disinfection by-products, and simple tips to conserve water. Click here for the latest Water Quality Report.
