Water Quality Reports Mailed to Residents

KAUAI (KHNL) --  The Department of Water will be mailing out 2008 Water Quality Reports to Kauai residents this month.

The reports contain basic information on each of the 11 water systems on Kauai including: sources of water; levels of contaminants in the water; compliance with drinking water rules and educational information.

Kauai's water meets all of the Environmental Protection Agency's guidelines for Safe Drinking Water and any contaminants found during testing were well below the highest levels allowed by the EPA.

The Safe Water Drinking Act requires water utilities to provide water quality information to its customers every year.
