Report shows Carlsbad provides high quality drinking water
June 21, 2012
“Our residents should feel confident in the water we provide,” said Glenn Pruim, general manager of the Carlsbad Municipal Water District, a subsidiary district of the City of Carlsbad. “People might not realize that their water undergoes rigorous testing— even more than bottled water.”
The report will be mailed to all Carlsbad Municipal Water District customers at the end of June. It includes detailed water quality test results and explains where Carlsbad’s drinking water comes from.
The Carlsbad Municipal Water District Water Quality Report will also be available on the city’s website at www.carlsbadca.gov/water
and at the following locations:
- Carlsbad Municipal Water District, 5950 El Camino Real
- City of Carlsbad Faraday Center, 1635 Faraday Ave.
- City of Carlsbad City Hall, 1200 Carlsbad Village Drive
- The city’s three libraries, 1775 Dove Lane; 1250 Carlsbad Village Drive; 3368 Eureka Place
All California water agencies are required to distribute a water quality report by July 1. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the State Department of Public Health regulate the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems.
The Carlsbad Municipal Water District delivers water and recycled water to about 85 percent of the City of Carlsbad. The southeastern part of the city is served by the Olivenhain Municipal Water District and the Vallecitos Water District.
