ENSURING WATER QUALITY
Rialto Water Services is proud to inform residents that the Water Division has passed another annual Water Quality Checkup. The utility’s water has met all the Clean Water Standards set forth by the State and Federal Governments in 2004.
Our annual drinking water report, also known as the Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) is available for download. The purpose of this report is to provide you information about the quality of the water we delivered to you during 2016.
This report is mandated by the law, but we believe it is your right to know where your water comes from and what it contains. We are happy to report that we have consistently delivered water that has met or performed better than the standards set by State and Federal Law.
More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the USEPA’s (United States Environmental Protection Agency) Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1 (800) 426-4791.
DRINKING WATER REPORTS
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.
