GLENDALE, California – Glendale Water & Power (GWP) recently mailed customers the 2008 Water Quality Report that assures Glendale residents their water continues to meet and exceed requirements set by state and federal safety standards, and most importantly their water is safe to drink.
“The 2008 Water Quality Report assures our customers that our water continuously meets all health requirements set forth in state and federal standards, and that our water is safe to drink,” says GWP Senior Water Engineer Raja Takidin. “The report also focuses on the different projects and activities undertaken by GWP staff to maintain our tanks, wells and reservoirs to protect and improve water quality.”
Each year thousands of samples of our water are tested by our GWP water system operators and water quality staff. Staff reports the results to the State Health Department on a monthly basis. Water sampling and testing is done on a weekly basis to ensure its quality and to maintain a safe and healthy water system.
Glendale residents can review the detailed report on their drinking water delivered to them in the previous year. Only the contaminants that were detected are indicated on the report. The report also describes various terms used in describing water quality. For more information on GWP’s Water Quality Report, residents can call (818) 548 – 3962.
