Our annual Consumer Confidence Report, which the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency requires all public water suppliers such as WaterPro to provide to their customers every July 1, once again shows that WaterPro’s drinking water far exceeds the state and federal standards for water cleanliness and safety.
In fact, our water is 100 times cleaner than the standard set by the state of Utah, which is .3 NTU (Nephelometric Turbidity Units), while WaterPro’s water has only .03 NTU. NTU is measured by shining light through water and using a very sensitive spectrometer to measure the light refracted by impurities (turbidity) in the water. The more light refracted, the dirtier the water.
Our membrane ultrafiltration system, plus the cleanliness of the water in our watershed, account for WaterPro’s ability to provide such clean water. We have never had a major problem with our water, and we are proud of our record in providing superior water to our customers.
The federal Environmental Protection Agency requires us to provide the following safety information regarding drinking water. This information does not indicate that our drinking water is contaminated or unsafe in any way, only that there are resources available for more information about water quality and safety.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immunocompromised people such as those with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, people who have undergone organ transplants,people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline: 1-800-426-4791.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. In fact, tap water from public sources (such as WaterPro’s water) must meet more stringent quality requirements than bottled water.
You can obtain more information about contaminants and potential health effects by calling the EPA’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline: 1-800-426-4791.
