City of Milwaukee’s 2011 water quality report card
May 2, 2012
The City of Milwaukee’s drinking water utility is mailing its annual water quality report to customers now through June. The Consumer Confidence Report says Milwaukee’s drinking water is of the highest quality in the United States and in full compliance with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards.
The EPA requires public water suppliers to issue the annual report about water quality and related topics. The purpose is to provide information to consumers so they can make informed decisions about any potential health risks pertaining to the quality, treatment, and management of their drinking water supply, source, and the environment. The report includes “Use Water Wisely” consumer advice about finding and fixing household water leaks to control water costs and avoid wasting water.
The report is being mailed as an insert with the Municipal Services Bill to customers in Milwaukee, Greenfield, Hales Corners, St. Francis, and West Milwaukee. (The suburban communities receive billing service from the utility.) The report data is shared with the utility’s customer communities of Brown Deer, Butler, Franklin, Greendale, Greenfield, Menomonee Falls, Mequon, New Berlin, Shorewood, Thiensville, Wauwatosa, and West Allis. The Milwaukee Water Works also provides water to the Milwaukee County Grounds facilities.
Copies of the report are available at city government offices and health centers, and Milwaukee Public libraries. Find the report online at http://city.milwaukee.gov/water/about/WaterQuality.htm.
