2019 Water Quality Report
Since 1990, California public water utilities have been providing an annual Water Quality Report to their customers. This year’s report covers calendar year 2018 drinking water quality testing and reporting. Laguna Beach County Water District (LBCWD) vigilantly safeguards its water supply and, as in years past, the water delivered meets the quality standards required by federal and state regulatory agencies. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and the State Water Resources Control Board, Division of Drinking Water (DDW) are the agencies responsible for establishing and enforcing drinking water quality standards.
In some cases, LBCWD goes beyond what is required by testing for unregulated chemicals that may have known health risks but do not have drinking water standards. Unregulated chemical monitoring helps USEPA and DDW determine where certain chemicals occur and whether new standards need to be established for those chemicals to protect public health.
Through drinking water quality testing programs, your drinking water is constantly monitored from source to tap for constituents that are both regulated and unregulated.
