Annual Water Quality Report Graphic Design
Every year, the South Central Connecticut Regional Water Authority supplies its consumers with a water quality report for the prior year. “To ensure that your tap water is high quality, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Connecticut Department of Public Health (DPH) set standards for the presence of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems.” The 2009 report graphic design by Granite Bay Design features a cover photograph by Paul Kazmercyk, taken at the Authority’s Big Gulph Recreation Area.
“Essential to a healthy, thriving and economically vibrant community is an abundant, reliable supply of water. The South Central Connecticut Regional Water Authority (RWA) plays an important role in meeting the public water supply needs of the region. We provide high quality drinking water to over 400,000 consumers. This water quality report, required by federal and state regulations, provides you with a summary of the region’s public drinking water quality.
RWA employs the multi-barrier approach to ensuring water quality. This approach focuses on watershed and aquifer management to protect the quality of our drinking water sources, treatment of the water prior to consumption, maintaining the distribution system which delivers the water to the tap, and monitoring the quality to assure compliance. Our water testing is stringent. Last year we performed more than 110,000 tests on over 10,000 water samples. We are pleased to again report that these tests show RWA’s water quality meets or, in most cases, is better than the state and federal standards with one exception, sodium, which is discussed in this report. We report all of this information on a regular basis to the Connecticut Department of Public Health.
Our pride is built on a heritage of providing service and water quality excellence to the communities we serve. Should you have questions concerning the information in this report, please call Customer Service at 203-562-4020. Thank you for allowing us to serve you.”
