WATER QUALITY REPORTS
Santa Rosa’s Water Quality Report is also known as a Consumer Confidence Report. The Consumer Confidence Reports are a key part of the public’s right-to-know as established in the 1996 Amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA, section 1414(c)). The Consumer Confidence Report, or CCR, is an annual water quality report that a community water system is required by Federal regulations (63 FR 44511, August 19, 1998) to provide to its customers each year. Community water systems (CWSs) like Santa Rosa’s serving 10,000 or more persons are required to mail or otherwise directly deliver these reports. The report lists the regulated contaminants found in the drinking water, as well as health effects information related to violations of the drinking water standards. More information on CCRs can be accessed on EPA's website at http://water.epa.gov/lawsregs/rulesregs/sdwa/ccr/index.cfm and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) website at http://www.cdph.ca.gov/certlic/drinkingwater/Pages/CCR.aspx.
In January 2013, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a memo that allows water suppliers to use alternate CCR delivery methods of informing drinking water customers of their water quality. Santa Rosa will move to provide the CCR information electronically as provided under the guidelines released by the EPA and CDPH. Currently the CCR is sent to 93,252 households and businesses in Santa Rosa. In 2014, a notice in the Santa Rosa water and sewer bill will notify customers that the CCR is available electronically on our website and give customers the option to continue receiving the CCR by mail. You can subscribe now to receive future issues of the CCR via email by clicking the mail icon on the right column of this webpage.
The City of Santa Rosa spent $35,801.12 to produce and mail the current Water Quality Report. The cost per report is $0.38 each. Printing and mailing of the report was the bulk of the cost of the report coming in at nearly $31,000.00. The City of Santa Rosa supports alternative delivery methods of the report and will have available hard copies to customers who want a report mailed to them.
