Quality drinking water is essential in nearly every aspect of life.  The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has taken an interest in verifying that each community has clean water available.  This interest has led to the regulation of water treatment processes, water quality, and the proper distribution of an annual Consumer Confidence Report (CCR).  The CCR provides vital information about each community’s drinking water.  It is designed to increase the communities understanding of their water quality.  Some of the information in your CCR is your water source, possible contaminants, test results for detected contaminants and other warnings that may affect members of your family based on other medical conditions. 

Columbus and Fort Benning residents are fortunate to have high quality drinking water and we want you to be confident that we work hard to ensure the safety of your drinking water.  Please take a moment to review the report so you can see for yourself how Columbus and Fort Benning’s drinking water measure up to the regulations.
