Quality drinking water is essential in nearly every aspect of life. As a part of the Safe Drinking Water Act, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets many water quality regulations to ensure every community has access to clean drinking water.  In addition to regulating the water treatment process and the quality of distributed drinking water, every water provider must provide an annual Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) to every customer.

The CCR provides vital information about each community’s drinking water and is designed to give community members an understanding of their water quality. The information included in the CCR is the water source, possible contaminants, water quality test results for the previous calendar year, and educational health information. This year’s CCR report provides comprehensive testing data from 2020. The information inside the CCR will be provided in two different formats to help with comprehension of the technical information. 

Columbus Water Works (CWW) is mailing the annual CCR directly to all of our customers this upcoming week. We are pleased to inform you that your drinking water quality is excellent and that CWW is in compliance with all state and federal guidelines for drinking water.  We are committed to delivering high-quality drinking water. We remain vigilant in meeting the challenges of source water protection, water conservation, and community education while continuing to provide safe drinking water to everyone in the community.

When you receive your copy of the 2021 CCR, please take a few minutes to review the report and see how your drinking water measures up to the regulations. If you do not receive a copy or would like another copy, you may visit our main office, located at 1421 Veterans Parkway or
