Report: area water quality exceeds standards
by Staff Writer
The study of more than 150,000 tests during 2010 found the area’s drinking water is safe.
“There is a direct link between our community’s investment in both water infrastructure and well trained staff and the high quality of our water,” Barry Gullet, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Utilities director, said in a news release. “We have been recognized for the superior operation of the water system and the quality of the drinking water produced on many occasions, and once again our annual water-quality report reflects the high level of confidence customers should have in the tap water they drink.”
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency requires utility departments to conduct a number of tests throughout the year and publish the findings annually. All Mecklenburg County residents will receive a copy of the report in the mail.
