PALMDALE – Palmdale Water District has published its 2022 Consumer Confidence Report (CCR), which indicates the water provided to its customers last year met all state and federal guidelines, the agency announced.
The CCR is a detailed report showing where PWD’s water comes from, what it contains, and how it compares to drinking water standards as set by the state.
Mandated by the California State Water Resources Control Board Division of Drinking Water to be published annually by July 1, the CCR report has results from thousands of tests from water sources used for PWD’s distribution. In 2022, PWD staff collected more than 3,500 water samples and completed more than 18,000 tests for over 80 regulated contaminants, agency officials said in a news release.
“We are pleased to inform our customers that they are receiving high quality water that has undergone stringent tests to ensure that all guidelines are met,” said PWD Water Quality and Regulatory Affairs Supervisor Amanda Thompson. “I highly recommend that customers read the CCR and learn about their water. It is important to be informed about the water you are receiving.”
The CCR includes an easy-to-read Water Quality Data Chart that is divided into two standards – Primary and Secondary. Primary standards identify contaminants in water that may be immediately harmful to humans or affect their health if consumed for long periods of time. Secondary standards highlight water qualities that have to do with aesthetics, such as taste, mineral content, odor, color and turbidity.
In addition to the water quality data, the comprehensive report has information about PWD’s three water sources and the amount supplied by each source in 2022. The CCR 2022 results can be viewed on the PWD website at:
