The City of Statesville has released its 2015 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.
Hard copies can be obtained by calling 704-878-3441.
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.
The City draws its source water from the Catawba River Basin on Lookout Shoals Lake (pictured above) and the South Yadkin River.
