The Consumer Confidence Rule requires public water suppliers serving the same people year-round in community water systems to provide consumer confidence reports (CCR) to their customers. These reports are also known as annual water quality reports or drinking water quality reports. The city has made these reports available to the public on the city’s website.

The CCR summarizes information regarding sources used (i.e., rivers, lakes, reservoirs, or aquifers) any detected contaminants, compliance, and educational information. Visit the city's website to find the map and which report corresponds to your home.
