To ensure the ongoing safety and quality of the water resource, neighboring local public agency West Valley Water District is in direct partnership with the City of Rialto to lead all perchlorate remediation activities.
It is important to know that Rialto Water Services does not pump water into its system that contained detectable levels of the Perchlorate contaminate. We currently have wellhead treatment on two of our wells for the removal of perchlorate.
This wellhead treatment removes the perchlorate to a Non-Detection Level. The other two wells affected by perchlorate contamination have been shut down, are out of service and have not been used since detection occurred. These wells are targeted for wellhead treatment in the near future.
