The City of Statesville has released its 2013 Water Quality Report and results show the City's drinking water meets or exceeds every health standard developed by both the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).
Statesville’s Water Quality Report is prepared by the City's Water Resources Department to meet the EPA's National Primary Drinking Water Regulation for Consumer Confidence Reports (CCR). It details drinking water sources, the testing methodology, the substances detected in the water and the levels of those substances.
The report gives the background on Statesville’s water system, explains the testing and many of the terms used in the information, and provides many charts.
"Statesville offers a safe, reliable water supply is critical for the health and welfare of our citizens, the prosperity of our businesses and our quality of life," Water Resources Department Director Joe Hudson said. "We are proud to deliver high quality drinking water to our customers."
Statesville has been serving water to the community for many decades and is committed to providing its customers with water that meets more than 100 state and federal drinking water standards. The City draws its source water from the Catawba River Basin on Lookout Shoals Lake.
Each year, the City produces a report for its water customers. It can be viewed online and hard copies can be obtained by calling 704-878-3438.
