The annual Consumer Confidence Report (CCR), also known as the “Water Quality Report”, or “Drinking Water Quality Report”, is an opportunity for us to share with you about the status of your water quality and the measures taken to assure its quality and safety. Each year we compile the results of our daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, annual, and mullti-annual tests into a mailer that is sent to each customer.
If you live in a priperty where you do not receive direct communications from MAWSA such as an apartment, copies are sent to your property owner. You may also find a copy by clicking here.
