The City of Anacortes Water Quality Report, also known as the Consumer Confidence Report, is published annually to provide an overview of water quality during the previous calendar year. The Water Treatment Plant is required by the federal Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) of 1976, as amended in 1996, to produce a yearly report on the quality of its drinking water. In addition to reminding consumers of the importance and need to protect drinking-water sources, the report's purpose is to inform drinking-water consumers:
Where our water comes from
What analytical tests are conducted to ensure its safety
What those tests reveal about the water
How those results compare to state standards
Last year, as in the past, the City of Anacortes’ drinking water was in full compliance with all county, state, and federal regulations. In fact, we are proud to report that our water has never violated a primary maximum contaminant level.
