Our job is to purify water so that it's safe to drink. The exact treatment process varies depending upon where our customers live and whether they receive water from wells or from rivers, lakes or streams. No matter where our water comes from, we add chlorine to remove harmful bacteria and to make sure it is safe to drink. We may also add other chemicals or filter the water to remove impurities. Sometimes we aerate the water to improve the taste. Our goal is to provide our customers with drinking water that meets or surpasses all state and federal standards for health and safety. If you would like specific information about how water is treated in your community, contact your local water provider.
